10 thoughts on “Fire on the Mountain

    1. Thank you. It is one of my favourites as well because there is a story behind it. I was out taking photos along a creek when an old man pulled his car onto the wrong side of the road, got out, and plowed through the snow to come talk to me. He said there was a herd of elk further up the road that he thought someone like me with a camera would really want to see. He must have mistaken me for a tourist, because, to locals, elk on the road are known as extra-large hood ornaments. But he was so enthused I thanked him, got in my car and drove in that direction as I waved to him. There was no sign of wildlife, and since I was learning about trusting God with the detours in my life, I started looking for a reason why I could have been re-directed. It was a cloudy winter afternoon and I started losing the light so, disappointed, I headed home. When I crossed the bridge over the creek I saw the last rays break through the clouds and hit the mountain. If I had not been detoured I would have missed the light on this scene. It only lasted a few minutes. It felt like a gift from Abba. 🙂


  1. Stunning photo! As I was reading your story of how you got the picture, I wondered if maybe the old man was an angel in disguise!
    ” Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.’ – Heb. 13:2
