    Great tribute.

    That is a good question and I have to think about it. It is an emotion thing I guess, perhaps I just wasn't ready for it yet, for whatever reasons there might be deep in my heart. I can't analyze myself. Perhaps I'll do a fourth shot in the winter with snow on the ground, a candle in a lantern illuminating the stone and the engravings, late in the evening or early in the morning. I think December 15th would be perfect.

    Thanks for making me think, it reveals things about me, to me.

    OK, I thought it might have been intentional and may have been done for various reasons. I like the effect, high contrast and grainy feel for the setting and purpose (my apologies, I realize you did not post this for a critique). The middle shot is by nature an emotional and powerful capture. Knowing this does now beg the question- If it is a tribute, why not show his name?

    Thanks for commenting cnyram.

    "Hiding" his name was deliberate. I tried to just leave the dates visible, sought a while for an angle that would let the sky between the trees reflect on the stone. I finally had to lay flat on my belly to shoot it... I hope nobody saw me while in the act.

    Sorry for your and the Family's loss. Unfortunately the reflection in "final" shot covers his name.

    Thanks for comments. After your reply I removed the fourth image and now I am considering a re-edit of the remaining three ones... perhaps less saturation. We'll see.

    I have always like a good lens flare. In this case, it has an angelic quality.

    Good shootin' Tex!!
