Celestial Event

I wanted to let you know that we have a major celestial event happening between tonight (3-7-2018) and sunrise (3-8-2018).

The Moon, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will all be aligned!  I hope you have the chance to see it.

If you are in America, the Moon will be rising at 11:35 p.m. central time

If you are across the world from America, you will be able to see similar alignment this evening your time. It just won’t be a perfect alignment.


Beside Quiet Waters

BESIDE QUIET WATERS by Gloria Gunderson An Inspirational Photography Book I am almost ready to submit final manuscript materials for Beside Quiet Waters to my publisher. I have already submitted final book cover and title page materials to my publisher. As of July 15th, the book designing process officially started. Beside Quiet Waters will be available sometime in January 2015 on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com and bookstore.trafford.com Beside Quiet Waters is based on the following Bible verse: He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; (Psalm 23:2b-3a) NASB Beside Quiet Waters is a culmination of nine years of photographing the beauty God has brought my way, combined with the Bible verses that God has used to restore my soul from the heartaches and disappointments I have had in my life. I have truly been led beside the quiet waters of God’s presence through the healing that He has done in my life. Beside Quiet Waters will feature my photography, Bible verses, devotions, and poems that are all inspired by the painful, yet beautiful healing that God has completed in my life.

December Full Moon

Moon's Pink Glow

I was completely in awe of the full moon in the early morning hours of December 17, 2013 in Minnesota. God provided us with a beautiful full moon including pink & purple glowing haze. He even gave us a rainbow around the moon before the clouds lifted.

Here is a link to my facebook photo album with five photographs of yesterday morning’s December Full Moon:  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.257688961059002.1073741839.132826903545209&type=1

Breathtaking Sunset

Breathtaking Sunset

In the eight years since starting my scenic photography business, I have never seen such a gorgeous sunset. I really couldn’t think of another name for this photograph because it was truly breathtaking. If you look closely, you can literally see the sun’s flames….amazing! While I was taking the photograph, it appeared that the sun’s shape distorted a little as it was going down behind the cloud. I thought it was an optical illusion, but it wasn’t.

I am very thankful to God for allowing me to capture this amazing and gorgeous sunset last night! God’s beauty is truly amazing and such a blessing in our stressful world.


Pileated Woodpeckers

I’ve been trying to capture a Pileated Woodpecker over the past year.  They are very hard to capture on camera because they are so shy of people and fly away at the slightest sound.

This morning my fiancee, Steve, came in from outside and told me that there were two of them in a nearby tree.  I was finally able to capture not one, but two Pileated Woodpeckers!

I am always amazed at the huge holes they leave in trees.  I was able to capture one of these two with its head inside the hole it had just made.
