This is possibly one of my most favorite places to shoot. I have been there a few times and had the chance to go back last night. It was a rainy and cloudy day and about 15 minutes before sunset. I wasn't sure what I would get. Some of the trees in the area had already started dropping their leaves, so I was hoping that wasn't the case at this spot. The surrounding trees and rain clouds made for a pretty dark scene, but I was able to use my tri-pod and a longer exposure to capture this shot. This is the Old Grist Mill in Woodland, WA. To this day, it is a working mill, though it looks like something from days gone by. It is about 8 miles off the freeway, yet appears to be in the middle of the mountains, somewhere undisturbed. I could spend all day in this area, especially this time of year. Autumn is my favorite season and the vibrant colors is one of the reasons why. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy the shot.

Congratulations! One of my favorite spots, too. The Friends of the Cedar Creek Grist Mill did such a great job restoring it as close as possible to the original construction.
