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.

Wide Woods Panorama

I did some experimenting with the panorama function of my camera.
These are the woods I walk through regularly.
It was a nice day!

Oh, nice panoramic deep in the woods...ordinarily I think of panoramas out in the open...over mountains and glaciers...

Anvilcloud said...

Weird. We've both done panoramas lately, and I haven't tried for years since the last one.

Irina said...

Mysterious woods.
I have to try panorama view!

Lesley said...

Not only are these woods wide, but they are also deep, and filled with mystery and intrigue!

BITS OF SHADOW

Bits of shadow and blasts of light,
Morning and evening, noon and night;

Days of darkness, gloomy and drear;
Sometimes bright ones, bringing good cheer;

Spring or winter, summer or fall,
Light or shadow—embrace them all!

That's so attractive!

Very nice capture. Lovely woods and the panoramic view is wonderful.

awarewriter said...

You really nailed the beautiful light (and shadows) with this one Dimple. The B&W rendering is spot on.

That turned out wonderfully well, didn't it? Reminds me of the woods I used to explore when I was young.

A wood of shadows.

Genie said...

This is so cool, Dimple. It has been SO long since I have taken any panoramic shots with the Canon. Actually I had forgotten about that feature. This one turned out beautifully. Maybe you were really in Hobbit Land. It surely looks that way. Nice spot. genie

Shanda said...

This is beautiful. And I like that you did it in black and white.
Thanks for linking up with In Search of Beauty.

Jeanette said...

Your words are so true, we couldn't see or share these wonderful photos if it weren't for God giving us such wonderous views. His beauty is all around us and I am glad that you decided to share this particular beauty with us.

Very nice shot. Would love to see it blown up and spread across the wall. Great place to spend time, too. Hope all is good with you. Take care and be well.

peace

We often think of being in the woods as being dark and perhaps brooding in scope. Yet, into any thicket, the light provided by God enters the scene. This, as with all creation, patched of goodness and life are all about. This wonderful edit shows both - nice!

Kelly said...

This turned out very nice! I recently got a panorama app for my phone, but haven't had a chance to experiment with it much yet.

Amen to your disclaimer on Who gets the praise, too.

Joan said...

Nice panoramic shot. I love walking through the woods and this place looks lovely.

Blessings,
Joan

I'm very fond of panoramic shots and this one works just fine.
