    Thank you, everyone! I can't take all the credit--Mother Nature gets most of it!

    This contest gets harder each month! And I'm delighted that Pam's photo (which I also voted for) won. I want to point out a detail I especially like about this statue of Lincoln that appeared as one of the November photo submissions. This is one of the newest Lincoln statues at Gettysburg. The building where it stands is currently the home of the Adams County Library System, but it was originally a federal building that at one time housed the US Post Office and the offices of the National Park Service. Across the top of the building, carved in stone, are the words "United States of America." If you view Lincoln's statue at just the right angle, it looks like he is gesturing toward the name. Whenever I see the statue now, I think Lincoln is showing us what was at stake during the Civil War and what it was that he was sworn and determined to preserve. It may not be possible to photograph Lincoln's gesture and the lettering together because to shoot at the angle and distance needed could make the the letters too small to read. But I hope someday someone who is a better photographer than I will be able to capture that in a photo. If they do, I would be eager to see it here on CWT!
