I'm blessed to live in a part of this great country; where the San Juan Mountains of Colorado are in my back yard.  I love to take photos, hike, fish, hunt and just plain ramble in the mountains as much as possible.  They are my "therapy center"; my sanctuary at times; and my reminder of my creator.  Everywhere I turn in the mountains reveals God's wisdom and power.  I'm also blessed to have a wife that allows me to scratch my hiking itch regularly.  It's only right that I share what I'm blessed to see with those who cannot go there themselves.  Though I have the usual digital editing tools; my goal is to present what I actually saw and convey the mood that it conveyed to me.  So much of digital photography involves "over-the-top" editing in my opinion.  It is true that the digital camera just cannot always see what our God-created eyes see.  So, some minor editing is necessary.  But, to be true to the original artist - the Creator - I cannot in good conscience make my own masterpiece. My goal is to let Him get the glory as much as possible.  Many posts will have a definite Christian theme.  If that offends you please feel free to find another blog more to your liking.  I hope you enjoy these ramblings and photos!  God Bless!
