Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

Idaho Evening Sky


  
From my archive, taken early last September. Those of you who have been visiting for a while may recognize the location, as it is a favorite place of mine for capturing beautiful scenes.

For more skies, visit Skywatch Friday and Looking at the Sky on Friday. To see other reflections, try Weekend Reflections, and for scenics you will like Scenic Sunday.

I was on your other blog, "My Bible blog" and wanted to comment on your Easter posting, but didn't see a comment section at the bottom. I felt so strongly in agreement with you that I came to this blog to let you know. You did an excelent job of presenting the subject of Easter and did it in such a loving way. I celebrate Jesus as a risen Savior everyday.
I'm going to support that blog by becoming a "follower". Thank you.

Lovely shot, Dimple. I like all the cloud variations.

Lovely clouds, and I love how the reflection just barely peeks through the gathering darkness. Beautiful.

The Gem State is wonderful, the clear mirror-like water takes on the blue of the heavens and the reflections of the tall pines. Stunning in the natural beauty, a great place of contemplation...

Some inky blacknes in that water. I love images where I really have to work hard to determine where the line is between reality and reflection.
