I Saw The Light

I Saw The Light

Roztocze, Poland

It was one of those precious, magical moments, when you see a sign.
Today, I've made the pilgrimage with local people where I am on my vacation. It is a monthly event, every 13th day of the month people come to cherrish Virgin Mary of Fatima and make a prayer intention.
The one hour walk through the deep forest to the place of religious worship, was in cloudy weather. Then the service at the open air, on the big glade, under wind and clouds, we thought it would rain soon.
But at the end I looked at the trees and saw this sunlight, it was like a sign from heaven.

Nicely captured, Jola. That's a stunning image. You exposed it perfectly, which was probably difficult given the differences in light and dark.
