Hi, my name is Mark Hrabe (pronounced Ra' Bee). I'm an outdoor photographer who is inspired by the wonders of God's creation. I believe that God has much to tell us in common, and sometimes not so common, beauty.

As a Christian, I strive to be alert to the nudges of the Holy Spirit and then faithfully record these visual manifestations. I believe the Holy Spirit is active in all of us and is leading us to notice the signs with which God has gifted us.

Since these gifts of God are truly a blessing, I am sharing them with you in this photo gallery. My prayer is that they inspire you as much as they have inspired me. I recommend that you purchase an image that speaks to you to use in your own meditation with God.

I became interested in photography at an early age, starting out with a Brownie camera. I then progressed to a 35mm rangefinder camera before inheriting my father's Canon fTB manual focus SLR. Then when high quality digital SLRs became available I moved on to those. With the technical tools and techniques I hope to never lose sight that it is spiritual discipline that is the key to tapping into what God is trying to say through my images.

Besides these online galleries, I have several collaborative projects in the works where my photographs combine with the written word so that God's voice can truly be a multi-media experience. Drop me an email. My address is MWH at aperiora dot com. I will add you to my mailing list so you can be in on the latest news.
