It was a cheery, sunny day in the spring. And then there was a quick shower; one little cloud, a minute or two and then done. We call them sun showers. Sometimes things don't even get fully wet.
The top of Philippi's monument is wet, but the sides are mostly dry with some dark areas where the water slid down and created an interesting design. Serendipity can occur anywhere at any time, even after a rain shower in a cemetery — this time it made a possible photo subject a definite photo.
