Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Finishing our Hike in the Woods


As we rounded a bend we came across an area with a lot of camellia bushes and thought we would share some of the flowers that are now in bloom.  It was a pleasant surprise to find them on our hike.







            I backed away to take a picture of a little creek bed falls and was able to get this picture of Gerri texting or reading a text from our son.


As we ended our hike, we came to an area that was created about 10 years ago in the gardens.  Although there were no azaleas in bloom at this time of the year, the view is still very peaceful and serene.


Thanks for tagging along as we finished our hike.


  1. Gorgeous!
    We made it to Savannah! Perhaps a little warmth now!!

  2. Loved the promise of spring with your flower pictures. The church in the header is beautiful!

  3. Your pictures are so sharp and so clear. I can only imagine the time it takes you to pick out the perfect bloom in the right light and set the shot... we appreciate your efforts!
