Thanks to a local resident for sharing this helpful hint. With the use of a mirror and the reflection of the sun, those hard to read gravestones are a little easier to read. You can direct bright sunlight on a grave stone to which may bring out detail inscriptions that may otherwise be missed.
The size of the mirror will effect how much of the grave stone is lite from the reflection. Experiment with different size mirrors for different size grave stones. You may also find this method help when taking pictures of gravestones as well as seen in the photos above.
