Introduction - Nancy R. Staley


Welcome to my arts and photography website. I am a mountain woman at heart, and reside in the beautiful mountains of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. I love photography because it has a great mix of technical challenges. The creative and artistic aspects of photography touches my soul, as I hope my photos touch yours. Above all, photography gets me out into my beloved nature.

Some stunning objects in deep space (specifically the Orion Nebula) are accessible by DSLR cameras and normal lenses , but our eyes don't detect them. I realized there must be many unseen beauties that God has created but we are unable to see (hence the name Unseen Glories). They reveal His glory if we have the proper tools to see what He placed in the heavens. It became a metaphor for me: what is on the earth that also shows His glory, but we don't have spiritual eyes to see because we don't seek Him, or are we just too self-absorbed and busy to notice?

God wants us to notice them. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world." (Psalm 19:1-4, NIV).

My love of and purpose in photography is to reveal God's glory by making His creation seen, and show beauties and perspectives that cause us to pause and reflect on the wonders of the Creator. He has made all things. "Then God looked over all He had made, and He saw that it was very good!" (Genesis 1:31).

I hope you enjoy the photos. If there are any photos that speak to your heart, please let me know what touched you. You can comment under a specific photo or email me (see Contact Info).

Your fellow traveler in life.
