and morning light poured over the horizon…

sunrise at the Outer Banks

When God began to create the heavens and the earth— the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters— God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was…” – Genesis 1:1-4

dsc_0070My challenge with this post is to keep the picture count down to a dozen. I got out of bed early Saturday morning, made myself a cup of bad hotel coffee, grabbed my Nikon DSLR, and headed for the beach, just as the sun was beginning to pour silver light over the horizon.

A stiff breeze was blowing in across a rough sea, the sky was alive with color and cloud formations, the light was perfect. I relaxed for a few minutes, enjoyed the gift of another new day, then made my way to the church for my 8:30 meeting. It was hard to tear myself away.

In the words of the first chapter of Genesis, this simple affirmation: When God began to create the heavens and the earth— the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters— God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was…” Genesis 1:1-4

  2. Beautiful pics Derek. Nikon, huh? I had one of those back when the SLR had to be loaded with film. I actually love working with film photography, especially black-and-white. I am hoping to pick up a digital camera early next year, and plan on peppering my blog posts with photography. God bless.
