Statue of Mary at Our Lady of Guadelupe Trappist Monastery

Cassandra and Bryson and I traveled to Our Lady of Guadelupe monastery today to purchase some fruitcake there, (and because it was a nice drive in the country.) We hiked the forest surrounding the monastery and came upon an area that had a statue of Mary there. I liked the way the light was at that moment, so I snapped a photo. I converted it to black and white using calculations method in photoshop. By the way, the fruitcake is yummy!
