The San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge


The Golden Gate Bridge is an iconic structure.  The effort that it took to build it represents how strong man can be when he puts his mind to it.  God has given him the ability to dream dreams that are beyond what we think we can accomplish.  Our Lord is forever faithful.  He surprises me everyday.  The anointing that He places on His people is in a word, "Incredible".   I look at Robin and my photography work when we first came to the Rock Church and then look at it today and the change is very noticeable to me.  He has taken His hand and placed it on us.  People ask me why we would get up before sunrise and stay until after sunset and my answer is this, "when God has given you a gift and you don't use it I believe that it is a sin."  We must honor His gifts and use them as often as we possibly can.  We must use His gifts for the betterment of His kingdom.  Our wish is to always glorify God and to show His works through our photographs.  We want them to inspire others and show them that God is all around us and we should be forever grateful. There are often times when we would prefer to stay in the warm and cozy comfort of our bed, but then would we be honoring our Lord?  My answer is simply no.  I will continue to work on my craft and attempt to make it better each and every chance that I have an opportunity.  I love my Jesus and He has shown His Grace, Peace, Love, Joy, Faithfulness, Anointing, and so many other things in our lives.  We are so very grateful.

So here are some photos that were captured last weekend.  We got there in the morning and stayed until well after sunset.  I will be posting others, but here is a sample from during the day, then the evening, then after dark.

Nevada Bureau of Land Management Wild Mustangs

The Bureau of Land Management were awesome two weeks ago.  They met my buddy John Lavin and myself at their office in Carson City at 6am (We left Elk Grove at 2am) and then took us out on a full day of 4 wheel driving, looking for the ever allusive (that day anyway) Wild Mustangs.  We traveled all over the area, saw two horses in the distance early that morning and then, after I was about to say just take us back to our car and thank you very much, around 3:30pm we finally saw part of the herd.  John, BLM John that is, (not too confusing with 3 John's in the car) that we had looked for the 250 member herd in the morning, but this was a small herd of about 35.  Well, despite the amount of time it took, the bouncing and jostling in the 4 wheel drive, we finally got to see some Wild horses.  Awesome!!!  Out in the middle of nowhere, walking slowly closer to them, I am very grateful that I had rented a 200-400mm lens.  Otherwise, can you say specs in the distance.  Thank you Jesus for this awesome experience.  It was very different than the other wild horses in that there were no fences to hold these guys in.
