So, it’s been said a picture is worth a thousand words. That is perhaps never truer than when we are trying to describe God’s creation. Words at their finest barely scratch the surface of what we see in every area of creation. If you doubted before the first manned spacecraft orbited the earth, you didn’t doubt as the beauty of the earth turning in space was captured by a camera lens for us to view for the first time.
One of the blessings in my life is a friend, Rob Blair, who is a professional photographer as well as a worship leader in his church. He took the photo and designed the cover of the book I wrote, Bring Me A Vision.
When I see through his camera lens the beauty God allows him to capture there, I am sometimes transfixed by the awesomeness of our God.
After seeing several of his recent shots, I asked him if I could share them here with you. Enjoy this feast for your eyes and as you do, take time to linger with each one and don’t be surprised if you begin to worship the one who painted the scene you see through Rob’s lens.

I thoroughly enjoyed this, both the verses and the photos.
Thanks so much!❤️
Wow! Rob really captures God’s beautiful creation here! Thanks for sharing his photos with us, Pam.
Absolutely! As I had been looking at them and scriptures kept coming to mind, I so much wanted to share them. I was grateful he gave permission. The hard part was choosing. If you visit his website you will see so many more including ones of snowflakes and many many birds, and other deer photos.
Wonderful pairings s Scripture with the beautiful images of creation!!
