I like the way water looks at this speed (shutter). The way it turns into a thick, gliding sheet.

Thanks for your comment, Ryan. I love the soft flow of falling water that people sometimes shoot in quiet, idyllic settings. But this was as much as I could slow the shutter speed under these circumstances, and probably the energy of this water is more appropriate to the mill anyway.

Beautifull old Water mill Marilyn! It's nice to see these old equipments still working and doing their job.



Marilyn Whiteley on August 13, 2007

Thanks, Alex. We visited this many years ago, and I was happy to discover last November that it is now in better condition than it was then. It is being well taken care of.

Very nice Marilyn! is it still in regular use, or is it a museum?



Marilyn Whiteley on August 13, 2007

Thanks, Sigmund. It's now a museum, an interesting one.

Забавный механизм!

Thank you, Gashish.

And thanks, Craig, for suggesting the correct location. My excuse is that the satellite image now is much better than when I mapped it. I've also remapped the window shot and the millpond.
