A Mill and some Daisies
Camera: K-5 
Posted By: slowpez, 07-13-2012, 10:35 AM

The first two are of an icon in the Smokies - Mingus Mill. The first is a pseudo HDR that I used to counteract lots of blown highlights.
The second is part of the water trace.
I threw in the daisies because I like daisies.

love the water photo of the trace, the building looks like it is better than it was built back in the day.

Pleasant and refreshing - I've visited that mill a number of times over the years, but haven't been back since '95.

Me too Dave. Thanks for having a look.

The building most likely is in better condition Bob. Our country does so much restoration instead of preservation that we lose a lot of our past.

Daises are so photogenic... I can't resist them either. I love your perspective on these. The hint of yellow above the petals, the petals beautifully in focus. The bokeh is wonderful too! Your water fall shot is perfect too. Very very nice. And I enjoy visiting old mills. You have captured this one very nicely. I cannot tell you had problems with the light... the scene is lovely.

Thanks a lot Tess. Glad to meet another daisy lover. I can't resist thistle either. It was high noon at the mill (or close to it anyway) and the worst time to try taking photos of anything.

Those daisy shots are gorgeous! Love the Mill shots too....Mrs Rupert is on me heavily to visit the Smokies. Even though it's not in Texas, I may just do it next year, the shots I see from that area are very beautiful.

Do come Rupert. You will love it. The springtime is the best IMHO but I am partial to wildflowers over fall foliage. It is our most visited national park and it is free. Now it doesn't get any better than that, right? Wrong, it connects to the Blue Ridge which connect to the Shenandoah and they are also free. It truly doesn't get any better than that.

It is indeed a tranquil location. We saw the sign on our way home a few years ago and stopped in. I took a shot from about the same spot and have it framed on our wall. It is not Mabry Mill, however, but is Mingus Mill. Mabry Mill is in Virginia.

Here is my shot of the mill and another shot from the same trip that I had printed and framed.





I have taken shots of Mabry Mill as well but couldn't find one. I hope to get back there soon as well.

On the same theme, here is a panorama made from 4 shots that I took this past weekend in the Smokey Mtns. from the parking lot of Waterrock Knob trail near Maggie Valley, NC.
