The Lope: Star on the Hill

Star on the Hill

The great illuminated star atop the South Mound in Fredonia, Kansas, used to turn, but hasn't done so since its motor gave out in 2008. I was fortunate to linger over it in its last days of rotation, as seen in Star of Fredonia. It also doubles as a cross in the Easter season.

Even though it is stilled, I always enjoy stopping to spend a few middle-of-the-night minutes peacefully looking over the lights of Fredonia as I did when I shot the picture above, on December 13.
