This Little Light of Mine,

I’m gonna let it shine…..  Stephen H. Scott

While on our way to Mexico last year, these two sites caught my eye. The one on the left (the serpent) is near Gainesville Missouri, and the other is over Prairie Du Rocher, Illinois. The sun was just in the right place to make these locations shine.

The little body of water by a local trail jumped to life when sunshine flooded through a break in the clouds. The sun is also responsible for the reflection on the cow bell, creating its own circle of light. Though the salt lamp struggles to shine,giving off more of a glow than anything, its light is very warming.
