Rural landscapes: the blooms of spring

FLOWERS AT JACK’S HOME, NEAR SYLVAN LAKE, ALBERTA

I was making pictures of a beautiful barn and fences along the roadside when the owner came along on his ATV and generously invited me onto his property to photograph wherever I like. It was a rare blessing, so I took full advantage and this charming creation was one of the things that grabbed my attention.
The encounter turned into something else entirely when Jack asked me some photography-related questions about pictures of his wife. Turns out she had died just a few months before and Jack was struggling to keep going. The Spirit prompted me to ask if I could pray for him right then and there. He graciously agreed and the resulting prayer was as much a help to me as I hope it was to Jack.

  1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. [huh?] God’s creation is good, perfect. That is the way He sees it. Being in His image, if we take some time, we will see it also. I think the key words are “if we will take some time.” Great shot! Highly contrasting.

  2. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everything that God creates is good and has beauty. If we will take time, we will see and enjoy the beauty as well. Key words-“if we will take time.” Great contrast.
