Three crosses stand on this hill near Crystal Hills Assembly Church in Paynesville, MN. They use these crosses as their logo. We drove by on our way home and I was intrigued enough to take a photo.
It reminds me of the song â��Old Rugged Crossâ��. The opening words to the song are - On a hill far away stands an old rugged cross.
There were 3 crosses during the crucifixion as Jesus had a thief on each side of him when he was crucified.
Thank you for dropping in. Much appreciated.

A lovely photo with stunning clarity and color, but being nonreligious, I won't comment on the subject matter, Jodie.

The amazing thing about this capture is that it's both restful and beautiful, but also very solitary. Whether to a believer or not, the crucifixion, for all its crowds, was a supremely solitary event, where even light was abandoned to a lonely distant hill. And in the midst of this peaceful shot, you captured that solitary feeling as well, the crosses standing alone atop a road that seems to wind to nowhere even though it leads to the hill. Then, in an act of love, you've canopied the 3 crosses with tree-eaves which seem to envelop it all in a soft embrace. A fine piece of work pictorially and in terms of the theme you were capturing. Another fine capture from your home-area...My wishes to you all for a radiant fall, Jodie. Hope it's a beautiful one!
