How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light. Psalm 36:7-9 NIV
I participated in a year long scavenger hunt with the Nature Photo Club of the Wilderness Center, Wilmot Ohio. There were 15 captures on the list. You could submit all that you could but the idea was not to just grab record photos. Captures were to be “use the principles of good photography that capture viewers attention.” The only photo I did not have was of a night sky.
The irony of it all for me was that I was unable to attend the meeting to see everybody’s selection. So instead you get to have a peek at my collection from the natural world as a part of this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge – Peek

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses. Jeremiah 10:12-13 NIV
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.
– Isaac Watts (Hymn: “I Sing the Mighty Power of God”)
Hiking with my grandson, I took a picture to show in the LCD screen that the log in the pond was not an Alligator. In that shot I notice that the clear blue sky, harsh light and stiff breeze combined to make a remarkable abstract on the pond surface. So what you see here is out of the camera, sharpened in Lr. I did take the liberty of flipping the photo vertically so that we are viewing it right side up.
