St. Anthony waves

Back in April of 2006, I posted my first cross in my CruxPhotos blog: this one. I share it again here with the addition of "New Creation". On this first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of the Christian church year, we begin re-telling the story of how Jesus comes to make all things new. Happy New Year!

I've made thousands of crosses from my photos, but I still consider this early one my signature cross.

As a resident of Nebraska, I'm about as far from the ocean as one can be, so these sea images nourish my soul.

Whale observation cabin

This is an whale observation cabin on Quirpon Island, Newfoundland. The cross combines the red roof with the cold Atlantic beyond. We were hoping to see some humpback whales, but saw only the smaller minke whales.

Iceberg cross

Iceberg off Quirpon Island, Newfoundland. Actually, when they're this small, they're called "bergy bits." The ice is a most lovely blue.

Isn't it wonderful how many colors water can be--especially given the fact that it has no color?!
