Shining From Above

A foggy morning helped provide the setting for the suns rays to create this neat effect. It was a very fleeting moment but the rays cast down all around this old building at the Historic Ephrata Cloister just long enough for me to get the shot.

An Illuminating Path

Lanterns mark the path for guests on their way to hear a chorus sing at the Historic Ephrata Cloister. Thankfully, snow had fallen the day of this event and made a perfect setting for the glowing candles in these lanterns.

History Awaits

This image taken at dusk features the historic Ephrata Cloister. It is a National Historic Landmark and looks even more special in a fresh blanket of white. Snow came fast and hard during the day,but clearing skies in the evening provided a perfect backdrop.
