Sea Embraces Sun

Slipping Beneath the Waves

Sun and Sea, the source of all life. Together they bond one with the other in the primordial dance of nature, intimately embracing since the beginning.

About this scene: While attempting to capture the wonder of this sunset in Puerto Vallarta, I focused my attention on the sun as it slowly set on the horizon amidst the tapestry of colors. As I watched, a Pelican came into the scene from the left. I thought "Wouldn't it be a miracle if it flew toward the setting sun"?. There were most assuredly larger forces at work here as the bird flew directly toward the drama of the half sun. I waited, concentrating on the position of the bird. At just the right moment, as if willed by an outside force, my finger pushed the button on my iPhone7. And there it was. A glimpse into the Face of God. What a blessing to be allowed to record this scene which no words can describe. I present it here for you because it is for you that this scene was created. I, like you, am a privileged witness. Perhaps this is a reminder for us as to who we are and What God IS. I hope this scene touches you as it does me.
