Scripture Photo Collage

From the rising of the sun
unto the going down of the same
the Lord's name is to be praised.
Psalm 113:3


Have you ever watched a sunrise or sunset on the water.  It's a magnificent sight to see.  In the home I used to live in, the ocean was directly across the street and I watched the most beautiful sunrises so many mornings.  It was if the sun literally rose up out of the ocean.  

The photo on the right in this collage was a picture I took of a sunset.  The same happens, only in reverse.  The sun just seems to slowly disappear into the ocean.  It's breathtaking.

I am linking this to Vee's October Notecard Party, where we link up four photographs that would make good notecards.  I chose these particular four photos that I took, as they reminded me of fall and the colors that it brings.  

The first photo is a yellow begonia.  I edited this to make just the begonia have color so it would "pop" out of the photo.  What do you think? 




This photo was taken at sunset in a warm summer evening in Maine



At the Botanical Gardens in Boothbay Maine.  The women in my family gathered there at the end of August to celebrate my mother's birthday.  I was able to capture this butterfly on the daisies.



Just a patch of big daisies.  Beauty in the simple things.



That's all for today.  Thanks Vee for hosting the note card party.    Hope you all enjoy this display of God's creation.

Love the yellow begonia with just the yellow popping. The sunset on the water...I see that it is behind some hills so you weren't on the Pacific coast...is so pretty. I have only seen one or two sunsets at the ocean. And the simple things are certainly as beautiful as the more complicated ones. Thanks so much for participating!

A beautiful selection of photos for your note cards. Your editing of the begonia is excellent. It really does appear to pop out from the picture. Lovely.

Hi Abby! Back - finally - with some posts this week - though burning the midnight oil to do so. Got to get some balance in this new project work life of mine!! Meanwhile - loving what you've done her to illustrate the verse with His own Creation - stunner of a sunset! And - how grand your photo tricks! I don't know that I have the polished program to achieve this sort of thing - and I know I don't have the play time to experiment. Homeschool is keeping me maxed out. Hope to iron the kinks out this semester and flow better in the new year - we shall see.

Nice to keep up with you on fb!
Joy!
Kathy

Beautiful nature selections for Vee's party. All of them with the colors of Fall. I love begonias and this one is lovely. A beautiful sunset, the fabulous butterfly and my favorite (I love daisies -- such a happy flower) -- the daisies! Happy Fall!

Beautiful...and yes, from the rising of the sun I will praise Him!!

Debbie said...

Just plain out lovely. I love the closeups just as much as the sunset one, but that one made me want to head to the beach and enjoy the view. Unfortunately, we only get the sunrise over the water here.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Lovely photos! The sunset is just gorgeous. Love the mosaic!

Valerie said...

Hi Abby, thanks for your comment on my blog. I replied but forgot to mention, feel free to share any of the quotes or poems I post! It looks like you take quotes and verses and make beautiful printables. I love your blog and might find something here I'd like to quote as well. :D

Wow, spectacular photography! Thanks for sharing with us today. I just finished a really hard exam and have that *sigh* of relief. It's so nice to take a deep breath, read your blog scripture post and take in the beauty of it all, your wonderful photography.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

These are amazing! And it's a fun idea to put them into a mosaic, too! Thanks for sharing! Happy Fall!

Janette's Sage/Simply Your Decor said...

very pretty and whatever lens you used or affect they are so soft!
I enjoyed

Anne said...

Stunning photos, so beautiful! I particularly like the painted Lady butterfly, difficult to capture on film at times! God is amazing and to think people believe His creation was just random chance through evolution.....! TFS!

Judith said...

I love this post!! Since I have recently been reading some about diffusers, you peeked my interest!! I loved how you linked the auroma we are to have to Jesus Christ flowing through us. Well, you didn't put it exactly like that...those are my words.

I also wanted to share with you how much I have been loving your blog since I found you!! I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award over at WholeHearted Home and hope you will stop over to see what the fun is all about.

Blessings!!
