A Wintry Day

In early morning before sun fully penetrated cloud cover, I finally became frustrated that I could not conquer the challenge of photographing the Chapel and its surroundings.

On the way back to the car, I stopped briefly at a holly tree. My camera battery froze up, but not before I managed one picture of something remarkable. Ice crystals, or at least some of them, really do look like the Christmas star design I have always known from light strings and Nativity sets -- slender stem, six points, and all.

Now I will look for them everywhere, not as signs to some holy place but as the holy things themselves.
