About the word Shekinah

The word Shekinah (shuh-kigh-nuh) means dwelling. It refers to the visible manifestation of the presence (or Shekinah Glory) of God. A luminous cloud. It is the very presence of God on earth. (see Holy Bible-Exodus 24:9-18)

Divine Desolation

My most recent time in the field yielded this image of the Spring Shores Marina, at Lucky Peak Reservior in Boise, Idaho. This is one of several landscape shots I took, in addition to some soaring bald eagles.
This image paints a much different picture from the one seen in the summer months, when the area is alive with a flurry of activity. A time when the docks are floating, the weather is pleasant and people are out on their boats and on the shores, enjoying the tepid summer sun.
This place holds a strange attraction for me in the winter months; one of forsaken charm. The weather is harsh and the beaches are vacant, barring the occasional fisherman. The unrelenting wind blows over the frozen terrain and the clouds roll in. It is the birth of another winter night and I'm thankful I can be there to capture the quiet beauty of the moments before the sun begins to vanish on the horizon and darkness invades the fleeting light.

I love the clouds in this photo. It adds a nice texture to the scene.
