Unusual to see a mill so close to the sea? ... I think so!

Nice shot.

Cheers Alan, I've looked across at this old mill many times and never made that connection. But you are right and I've never seen another this close before either. It's definitely river-powered though: I must check this out with one of my pals who lives near here.

Thanks for calling by,

Séan.

Another great shot.

Cheers, Gabe

Thank you Gabe, this little port was one of the many along this coast that survived on fishing herring in the 1800 and 1900's, sadly the herring are no more and the fleet has gone. They are developing tourism these days and places such as this old mill are being refurbished to add to the attractions.

Many thanks for the kind words my friend.

Ellen, you are most welcome, I am pleased you like these photos. They may make you visit the 'North' some time in the future :-)

A couple of days ago, I wrote to you that I feel very nice when I receive your nice comments on my photos, because I personally consider that you are an exceptionally great photographer.

Another gorgeous photo which again reconfirms what I believe!

Great combination of colours, great synthesis and above all magnificent proportions!!

A big bravo my friend!! You 've done excellent job...again.

My warmest regards, Theodore

Thank you so much Theodore for such kind words and so eloquently put too: I am so humbled by your generosity. I am really pleased you like these little shots of my locality: quite often we don't appreciate what we have around our own doors.

Sig, thank you for your kind words and visit.

Best Regards,

Séan.

I used to fish with my friends, but our fish is gone too. Sadly this story repeating itself all over the world.

Thanks for the explanation, gives more "depth" to your picture.

Best wishes from Port Moody, B.C. Canada, Gabe

Thanks Gabe, we have gotten too 'smart': our technology is so sophisticated we can kill everything as we like with little thought for the consequences. Sad...

Warm regards and have a great weekend,

Séan.

Just beautiful. Looks like a wonderful part of the world, Madidi. Thanks for posting. I came upon your photos searching the address of a long lost pen-friend from elementary school years. Nice to see what he spoke of some 40 years later! -Frank - New York City.
