Seeing God Through My Camera Lens : God's Rainbow of Promises
Welcome to God's Rainbow of Promises!

"God promised me a rainbow. He promised one to you. A rainbow made of love, forgiveness through and through." Rekindle your hope and faith! The world can be a scary, depressing place...if we let it. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder that God is with us, loves us, and will guide us through the good times, and the bad. YOU are a beautiful creation!"- Blessings to you, Ellen M. DuBois

Seeing God Through My Camera Lens

by Ellen DuBois on 11/03/18

I love to take pictures, especially of nature. If I'm out driving and I forget my camera, it's inevitable I'll see something "magical" and wish I had it. However, cell phones are a quick fix if there's something I just have to take a picture of.

But, I love my Nikon D5200 24.1 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera Body Only (Black) camera. (I put a link in there so you can check it out. There are newer models, but this is the one I have.)

There's something about changing lenses, lining up a shot, holding my camera that I love.

Nature is my inspiration and to me, nature comes from God. So, I see God in everything I take a picture of. It can be a tiny insect or flower to a majestic mountain or sunset. 

Taking pictures calms me. My focus is drawn to whatever the subject matter is. The rest of the world fades away as I try to get the best picture possible. Sometimes, (especially with birds), I miss the moment. However, that's part of the challenge and I find the entire experience relaxing and quite spiritual.

Taking pictures can be spiritual? Well, for me it is. Like I said, I tend to see God in everything, so when I'm focusing on a flower, sunset, the pond in my back yard, my dog, birds, a leaf, (you get the idea), I feel closer to God and experience a deep appreciation for His, (or Her), creations.

I don't need to be a professional photographer to enjoy it. I'm not. Most of us aren't . I simply take joy and find calm in seeing God through my camera lens.
