God Will Take Care Of You

*** myPhotoWalk — Photo Artistry ***

Sometimes God brings something very special my way that He knows I will love. And that “special” gift from the Lord usually affords me amazing photographic opportunities.

Such was the case when a great horned owl began making visits to the Golden Pebble Habitat (that would be our backyard) in Palm Desert, California. I saw a feather on the ground one day and I walked over to examine it. Then, I just sensed something or someone watching me. I looked straight up into one of our palm trees and there was a beautiful great horned owl staring straight at me. I slowly backed off, ran into the house, grabbed my Nikon D810, my 80-400mm telephoto lens, and tripod. I sneaked slowly back outside and set up right under the palm tree. The owl was not put off one bit; it wasn’t the least bit worried about me or what I was doing. As a result, I captured hundreds of images and the “friendly” owl seemed to enjoy the whole affair.

That first owl encounter experience was now over six months ago. My great horned owl has visited me many times since. I have so many images I love. This is one of them. I love how the owl is peering at me carefully from behind the tree trunks.

So today, for a photo artistry take on my owl, I decided to add one of the many lessons I have learned from this wonderful gift from the Lord — God will take care of you.

To process the image, I added a Topaz Adjust filter along with an ON1 Software vignette. Then, I added a Topaz Impression filter to darken the edges so I could add text. I applied a layer mask and painted in the original owl at 100% so it would not have any of the Impression filter effects. Then, I added the key verses in Helvetica Neue that are so powerful in Job 12:7,10 — “Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you…the life of every living thing is in His hand, and the breath of every human being.”

So dear friend, be encouraged today from the message of the friendly owl. God will take care of you. Always and forever.

God bless you.
♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
