Star trails around the North Star taken near Lenhartsville, PA, at a friend's lake home. And moving across them are the trails of two airplanes- human inventions across nature.

Color in the Cemetery

The cemetery at Berea Moravian Church near St. Charles, MN, has color from the cemetery itself. Not as much an irony as one might think when you consider Christian theology.
