Del Mar Sunset
Sunset on the beach in Del Mar, California. December 2013.

This image takes us back a few months to winter. Yes, winter. Southern California has some of the best winter weather anywhere, and a Del Mar sunset on the beach can be just incredible, especially in winter. It’s the clouds. Everyone knows clouds are a rarity in Southern California, especially in summer, so we have to wait for winter to get the great shots.

I have said it before, but scenes like this leave me in awe of the Creator. He has blessed us with so much beauty, surrounding us with indisputable evidence of his glory and majesty.

19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. — Romans 1:19-20.

Proof that God exist is all around us. God is not hiding. He has shown us, plainly, everything that can be know about himself. He has not left us in a vacuum to figure out who he is. He has provided us everything we need for faith. Look at the list.

  • His invisible attributes,
  • eternal power, and
  • divine nature,

have always, “since the creation of the world,” been made known.

The problem that many have is not that they can’t believe, it is that they won’t believe. And they have no excuse to not believe.

I make landscape and nature images to capture the incredible beauty of creation and the awesome work of my Creator God to share with others. Besides his word, there is nothing that declares his glory to me in a more powerful way. Sharing my images of God’s creative work is just one small way I can share my awe of him with others, and hopefully open up a conversation about my awesome God.

How about you? When do you see his glory? How does God reveal himself to you? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
