Great shot. It's good to see one in action. There aren't many still in operation here in the UK.

What an absolutely peaceful scene. I've always been entranced by mills like this...the original hydro projects, I guess!

I LOVE this shot! Composition is very nice. There's so much here, yet it is so serene. The wreath just adds a whimsical touch to it all. :D

love this image!

Robin said...

Great shot! I love the way it's all various shades of brown. You'd almost think it was sepia if not for the wreath and the hint of green in a few of the trees.

I can just imagine bringing a little kid (a boy) there for discovery! Love the picture! Any thoughts on Sheba & Kalahari's (wordless) argument today over at the Ark? :-)

old maybe, but it worked!

A trip back to a calmer time.You would love the Simon Pearce glassware studio in Quechee, Vermont!

Beautiful photo, looks like a peaceful place to visit. I love how naturally limited the color scheme is.

I love the bits of green peppering the shot through all the browns and grays.

Fabulous! I have never seen one of these yet in real life and I'm glad you shared your great photo, so I could see this.

What a nifty old Mill photograph! Looks like you found it at Christmas time ;--)
I'm almost wordless at Small Reflections today.
Hugs and blessings,

Wonderful feel to this shot...good thing you got it too as I always wonder how much longer these mills will be around.
