Fire in the Heavens

As I lay in the new-fallen snow, I gaze through the lens in awe of the fiery sky as it weeps tears of snow upon the ground. It is difficult to remove oneself from such a beautiful and mysterious scene but it belongs to me now, captured to be remembered forever.  It is my joy when cold winter comes and greets me with such wonder of eye and lens of fire in the winter heavens.  I am in raptures!

They whisper. . .

“Stars.
 We Star-hosts numerous, innumerous,
 Throng space with energy untumultuous,
 And work His Will Whose eye beholdeth us.

Galaxies and Nebulæ.
No thing is far or near; and therefore we
Float neither far nor near; but where we be
Weave dances round the Throne perpetually.

Comets and Meteors.
Our lights dart here and there, whirl to and fro,
We flash and vanish, we die down and glow;
All doing His Will Who bids us do it so.

Fire.
My power and strength are His Who fashioned me,
Ordained me image of His Jealousy,
Forged me His weapon fierce exceedingly.

Snow.
My whiteness shadoweth Him Who is most fair,
All spotless: yea, my whiteness which I wear
Exalts His Purity beyond compare.”
_CG Rossetti

The Amazing Beauty of Horses

We love equine photography and have photographed many equine events and shows and they always inspire us in our photography and for our love of horses. Riding and photographing them is wonderful but taking a sleigh ride in snow is another wonderful treat altogether. You not only enjoy the beauty of the ride but also appreciate these beautiful horses and how they serve us. What truly wonderful creatures they are!

The horses paw and prance and neigh,
Fillies and colts like kittens play,
And dance and toss their rippled manes
Shining and soft as silken skeins;…
