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.
Love those beautiful geese! And what delightful, watery reflections for the day, Dimple! Lovely captures! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!
Lovely place to spend some time (by the water is my favorite kind of sitting place!) The geese are fun to watch -- here in the Willamette Valley too many of them have, apparently, decided not to migrate though. (It seldom gets that cold I guess). So there are kind of too many.
This set of pictures is so lovely Dimple... I just love the way you see and share nature.
ooh, nice ones Dimple. happy Friday to you.
Lovely set of photos!
Have a nice weekend:)
I love seeing the 3 separate groups
3 families enjoying a day at the lake :)
A beautiful peaceful scene and I just love the name of that creek - Fry Creek!
Terrific captures Louise! I would visit ther often too.
These are great shots with such stunning details. Well done.
Looks like a lovely place to visit, if I was there I would visit often too. Wonderful photos of the geese and the creek.
They appear to be moving at 50km per hour! What a charming scene, Dimple.
Beautiful birds to see...
I saw a flock feeding in the recently harvested fields on my commute to work this morning.
Thanks for sharing your lovely images.
Lovely. and I love to hear their call when they are migrating.
Great photos and lovely reflections.
I love these geese. So noisy, but full of character.
Beautiful photos of the lovely geeses and very nice reflections in the water.
Watching geese swim is a restful pastime to me.
A mist, a drop, a river, the sea—
All of this water, a gift for me!
Some snow, a berg, or maybe some ice—
Anything frozen, that would be nice!

Love the name Frye Creek...I can tell it is once again time for a large geese party. Looks like it was well attended. Such pretty shots on a dreary day here in VA. genie
They are always in a formation and always following with the one in front is that their mother or father? ^_^
What a delight to see these beautiful photos. Great shots!
My Watery post, have a lovely day!
Lovely group of photos!
Well done Dimple! I like the attitude you take towards photography in your header paragraph.
That pond looks like a wonderful place to practice photography.
Groovy captures! I relate.
Love all three shots,but that second one has some extra magic, I think it is the light.
Such a refreshing sight! Beautiful geese on such a calm water!
Just pretty looking place. Happy WW!
