It's Majestic Marvel Monday! Since Mondays can often be one of the tougher days of the week and for many, it means back to the daily grind, what better way to put a smile on your face than to marvel at His majestic wonders! I absolutely love photography! It is both a creative outlet and passion that brings me joy. So, each Monday, I will post at least one photo of God’s majestic marvels I’ve captured. See and be in awe of His creations and beauty! 

When I look at God’s beautiful creation I am reminded that, since He is powerful enough to do that, I can trust Him with my life as well.

Bluebird Glimmer

Bluebird Glimmer was captured as the sun began to set behind the mountains in Anchorage at about 9pm, casting a shimmer on the water. We’ve turned a corner and our days are getting longer with each spring day that passes. Soon, it will be midnight before the sun sets. It’s a refreshing shift, after a long, frigid winter and reminds me that each season brings change and its own blessings. The seasons will always change, and so will the seasons in our lives. So, if you have been weary, enduring a long, dark season in your life, have Hope, and remember that God is in control. In His due time, your season will change too!

“The seasons change and you change, but the Lord abides evermore the same, and the streams of His love are as deep, as broad and as full as ever.” — Charles H. Spurgeon

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. -Ecclesiastes 3:11

As beautiful as those snowy peaks are, when they pose obstacles in your life, they aren’t pretty. Maybe you are facing a mountain or two in your life right now and you can’t see any way around them. Those mountains appear so mighty and immovable. But what if your eyes aren’t supposed to be on those obstacles? What if those peaks are there for a higher purpose? What if they are there to help you shift your focus onto the “mountain mover”?

“Get your eyes off the mountain and your eyes on the mountain mover. -Unknown

“The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all peoples see his glory.” -Psalm 97:5-6

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” -Psalm 46:1-3

Bear Mountain Pano

Itching to explore and find new places to shoot, we took a road less travelled this past Saturday. Now that the weather is warming up, back roads that have been covered in snow for months, have begun to melt, making travel easier. Coming upon this incredible overlook, I was able to capture Bear Mountain Pano. This hidden gem on the first day of spring was a spectacular find. As the thaw continues, I can’t wait to be given more access to God’s incredible creation so I can share fresh shots of spring with you.

It was so refreshing to get out into the cool, crisp air this weekend. It had warmed up quite a bit and was a whole 42 degrees. The snow was beginning to melt and we were blessed with sunshine and beautiful blue skies. Signs of spring and new hope were among us. It wasn’t difficult to snap some gorgeous shots of God’s incredible creation. Multi-Peak Pano was one of those that I was able to capture this past Saturday.

Mountain in the Middle

I snapped this Mountain in the Middle at one of our favorite spots in Alaska. It’s a beautiful campground with an incredible view. Just a stop off the highway, with a large frozen lake, and grandiose mountains, there are few visitors in the winter. We often have this place all to ourselves, making it extremely quiet and peaceful. This place of solitude is where I can really feel the presence of God.

Elevation Sunset

See and be in awe of His creations and beauty!

We set out this past Saturday on a little day trip to check out a small town we had never been to. Feeling a sense of adventure, we figured it was time to see what this small town of Hope, Alaska, was all about. That’s right! The town is actually called Hope. With all the challenges we’ve come face to face with lately, it seemed especially fitting to explore this old gold rush town, but maybe not in the dead of winter. Our trip was stopped short, due to a 10-degree temperature drop and an extremely icy highway separating us from the our destination.

And while we were disappointed that we did not land in Hope, Alaska, this last weekend, God kept us safe. The town we hoped to reach was just that-a town. We know that our real hope is in the Lord and there will never be anything that can separate us from His love.

Heading back, I captured Elevation Sunset. As the sun dropped behind the peaks, hues of blue colored the mountains and shades of gray were swirled in the cloudy sky above.

No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 8:39

This past weekend, we took a risk, a turn down a mystery road leading to a beautiful overlook. Amongst a backdrop of several snowy peaks, there was this tree, Lone and Charred, standing after a terrible forest fire. It was one of the strong ones, a survivor.

Maybe you have been thrown into the fiery flames of life’s circumstances and you too, are a survivor. Let this be a reminder that God can still create beauty out of your life. Your story isn’t over yet!

“Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver;
I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. -Isaiah 48:10

It was a very gray kinda day in Alaska, yesterday. How it reminded me so, of back home in Portland, where the skies are drab and the rain drizzles constantly. The temperatures warmed up, and the roads thawed making for a nice Sunday drive, however. And although I didn’t catch any sun or blue skies, these Mountains Posed for me.

The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness.
-Psalm 72:3

Alaska is truly God’s country and a photographer’s paradise. There’s no denying it. Even if I can only give you teeny glimpses of our Creator’s magnificent beauty in my photos, that is my hope.

Today’s photo, Sundown Sunday, was a shot I snapped as the sun was setting behind the peaks, leaving a golden glow in the sky. A bald eagle screeched moments before and took off in the opposite direction flying over the icy cold river. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quick enough to capture it. It was a beautiful sight, however.

For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. -Psalm 95:3-4
