The beauty of nature

But a close up reveals its incredibly beauty

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved drawing and painting. Originally I wanted to go to art college – but I went into photography instead. Nature has been my favourite subject for a lifetime, whether I’m using a camera or a paintbrush. This blog is simply a place to bring together my favourite photographs and watercolour paintings; to declare God’s beauty in nature.

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze;
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee;
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
