Ventura, California

An old wooden pier in Ventura, California. From what I could gather, this pier was built in 1872 and renovated in 1993.

Spring Time in the Desert

Photographed west of Phoenix one morning in the spring of this year. We had lots of wildflowers this year, one of the beautiful things here in Arizona when we get enough rain. The flower in the lower left is called “brittlebush” and the cactus is the iconic Saguaro. We also have creosote bush in the scene.

Oceanside Harbor Village, Oceanside, California

The last few summers, we have visited the San Diego, California area for our summer vacations. One of the places we have always enjoyed is this harbor, which is north of San Diego in Oceanside. I just love viewing the harbor as the sun sets in the evening and walking around the village which is here. It is always a good place for a few good pictures too.

Beautiful Morning Light

How wonderful it is to enjoy such color in the early morning. Photographed on the Gila River outside of Phoenix, Az.

 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9

 

 

Spring Time Saguaro

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
COL 3:1‭-‬2 ESV
