About “Drops of Awe”

First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by and showing an interest in my blog.  Whether you were drawn to this site to see some pretty pictures, to get a bit of inspiration, by the recommendation of a friend, or simply out of curiosity – I appreciate the visit, and hope to see you here again.

I’d like to take a moment to briefly introduce myself , and why I’ve started this blog:

As of this writing, I am a 50 year old man, who has been married to my amazing high school sweetheart for 31 years.  Together we raised four children, and – I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around this – we now have six grandchildren.  Life is good!

What I have begun here is primarily a photo blog: a chance to show a few of my pictures, and hopefully to share a touch of inspiration here and there.  Many of the photos shared will be of water, including rain, waterfalls, water drops and other aqueous scenes.  Water – the simple combination of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom to create a microscopic molecular marvel!

In my photographic exploration of water, I have been amazed many times at what can be seen in a single drop:  a lone drop of water falling gracefully from a faucet that glistens with simple reflective beauty, raindrops forming multiple waves of floral patterns as they send ripples through a puddle, measured drips hitting a pool – creating a crown of water – then reacting in a dramatic water spike (or a single elegant drop) surging skyward.  And it is in these often-unseen details that I feel a sense of wonder, and sense of true awe, at the marvel that God has built into the simplest elements of Creation.  It is my desire to share with you all a taste of that wonderment as I stand in awe of the countless miracles in His Creation.
