    Purpose: Cherith Studios needs some photos for a Bible club slideshow!
    Request: She needs one photo that illustrates Isaiah 55:8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” and a second photo to illustrate the next two verses, Isaiah 55:10-12, “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
    Ideas: You are free to use your imagination and creativity to come up with whatever photos you think illustrate these verses best! Here are some ideas from @mia: For the 1st set of verses, she’s thinking of a beautiful sunrise or sunset, or a vast, clear blue sky. For the 2nd set of verses, she’s thinking of a photo that’s more of a landscape scene, maybe of a forest after it has rained, a trickling brook, or even just a beautiful snowfall, mountain view or fertile valley. Meditate on the verse, and see what comes to mind!
    Orientation: Horizontal.
    Photo Specs: Submit RAW, DNG or JPG, at least 3000 pixels longest edge. Edit however you like. No watermarks. @mia will be adding the verse.

    I have two submissions for each verse section.

    The sunset over Chicago and the orange sky over the mountains are for the first section . . . “for as the heavens are higher than the earth” and “my thoughts [are higher] than your thoughts”.

    The water droplet on the hemlock leaves and the snow-covered bridge are for the first section . . . “for as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven”

    Thank you @joseph!



    My submissions



    @KelseyFHall just curious, where were those last two pictures taken? I love the use of the lighting on the water.



    @lukevrable they were taken at Osage B



    that’s a beautiful location. the location of the islands(?) and even where the sun sets looks exactly like a beach near us where we visit sometimes.
