Thank you for stopping by my blog.

While standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon at age 12 I was compelled to pick up my parents’ $10 Kodak Instamatic camera and begin photographing God’s creation. I’ve been blessed to have a camera in my hands ever since, now as a full-time landscape photographer.

My passion is to experience the beauty and majesty of the land – which for me is a reflection of the Creator’s excellence – and share these glimpses of glory with others through photography and writing.

I hope you will be encouraged and blessed through the blog, and I would greatly enjoy your interaction through the comments.

peace & grace,

Ross Martin

    Hello Ross!
    I was a year younger than you and David Carson if you remember me. I wanted to share that I came across a FB post (likely from David) on your Vulnerability blog and was intrigued by the caption, however was on a short break at work and didn’t make it back to read it. So, this morning as I sit in His quietness on a sunny and soft, cool breezy Sunday morning before getting ready for church, I came upon your blog again knowing now I am supposed to read this and it’s in front of me again for a reason. I read it and it definitely spoke to me as I’m sure it has in one way or another to all that have. Vulnerability can evoke both positive and/or negative first impressive feelings depending on our life’s path…I felt both and for many reasons that I don’t need to bore you with (haha). My point is I was touched and continued to read the Devils Tower segment as well.
    I have often wanted to use my love of helping others, writing and yes photography to express and witness of Gods never-ending love and devotion to all of us and perhaps touch lives with encouragement, loving advice and of course humor. 🙂 Reading your blog has been another encouragement to me to follow my heart and this calling to use my God-given talents for Him and I’m sure will end up being a therapy of sorts from my own journey.
    It was very cool to see that you are still doing your passion of photography and long-time love (sorry I can picture her but name isn’t coming to me) as that’s a testament in itself…congrats you two!
    So, I just wanted to share my appreciation for your talents and following what God has put in front of you! Keep on!
    In Christ,
    Michele Ingalls-Hamilton 🙂
