Boone, NC :: Step Outside And Look Up

Sometimes I just have to step outside and look up into the heavens, take a deep breath, talk to God and jump back in to whatever I am doing. Late last night I wandered around outside our home, camera in hand. I have a thousand things I want to do, updating this blog being one of them, but through all the spinning items in my head I could not seem to focus on even one. Looking up into the vastness of the universe has a way of loosening the tightening strap around my list of things to do, my worries, my fears. Sometimes even my desire for the greatest endeavors get pushed into a box, and the once beautiful wrappings begin to take on a more ominous color, and the bows and ribbons turn into ugly vines. So many things requiring so much time I cannot seem to provide. "Stepping outside" seems to put everything back in to perspective. God is my King, I am his servant, whatever it is that I am able to do I want to perform for the service of Him. The heavens have a way of restoring my will and encouraging my spirit. Praise be to God for being such a wonderful escape.
Psalm 16:11 says,
"You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."


  1. Yep, Miah, He has. You're one of them. :)

  2. WOW these are awesome. Wish I was there to do this with you!
    What were your settings?

  3. Thanks, Troy! Wish we could have done it together. It was a pretty awesome night and the camera kept showing me things I otherwise could not have completely seen.

    I'm pretty sure I was set at ISO 800, f1.4 (set on infinity), and exposed for 4-6 seconds (via trigger). Also used a function that raises the mirror prior to exposure to reduce vibration.

  4. Beautiful....

    Love your stuff Dave, keep up the Godly work!!
