Awesome picture. I love this place. I take my kids once a year for a picnic. Looks like you went in the fall. The trees up there are great that time of year.

Thanks for the post.

LOL! I took my sisters a couple of years ago. Not sure if it made a believer out of me, but we had some good laughs. What better way to spend $5?! =D

Kind regards,

This mill is so picture perfect, it should be on a model train layout. We love it:) Regards, Chris

This is a perfectly picturesque shot. Not only is it a great piece of documentation, but it is inviting as well. Well done!

Thanks, not1word! I'm very appreciative of your many comments to my photos. I thoroughly enjoyed your gallery, too. Here's to digital photography that allows amateurs like us to enjoy a "rich man's" hobby!

Keep posting...I look forward to seeing more of your shots in the future!

Brian, if it had not been for your inquiry about the floor arches at Fort Pulaski, I would not have seen your gallery. It is simply stunning. This one picture has just made our day. I'm also happy that you have several pictures of the New River Gorge Bridge. This is the one I was referring to. After seeing your gallery, I think we have no choice than to make a trip to WV for at least a week. Thank you so much for posting such a magnificant selection of your work.

Thanks for visiting my gallery, and please do come visit WV! It's truly a fantastically beautiful place.

Several years ago I took a brief trip to the midwest and was so uncomfortable because there were no hills, valleys, or forests. I shared this with my coworkers, who were with me, and tried to explain the serenity and safety I feel when I'm surrounded by the hills of WV. The hidden treasures by the creeks and warm smiles on these country faces make it a great place to vacation!

There...that's my unofficial, unpaid plug for the state's tourism board! ;-)

This mill, which is easily accessed and near the NRG Bridge, is in operation and produces corn meal which is for sale in the gift shop. But even if you don't grab a bag to take home the view is worth the drive! Thanks again for compliment, but it's easy to get good pictures when the subject is that stunning!

Best regards,

Very well said, Brian. I get a lot of criticism because I don't edit or photoshop my pictures, but that's because I love to show things in their natural state. Especially pictures I take here at home in WV because everything just looks so beautiful as is. I used to hate living here until I started my photography hobby and became more interested in the outdoors and history. Thank you for posting such a great comment.
