The old mill

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 21 May 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Driving past this place a couple of months ago in Dorset and I had to stop and grab a couple of shots

Canon EOS 60D 1/50 second F/13.0 ISO 100 26 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

A fine old building in a spectacular setting. The image composition is very successful.

All it needs is a horse-drawn cart in the water and it could be a dummy run for John Constable's 'The Hay Wain'

@Ronnie 2¢: I tried to get one in but unfortunately it was a bit deep, so that idea was sunk !

I am so glad that you did, Doug! I love the entire scene ! It brings a peace to me this morning as I prepare to return to work. I LOVE the water shining its reflections - the clouds and colors and trees...it's just a wonderful and restful image :-)

This is quite a contrast to the last images, Doug ---- it must have been a great building set in nice scenery. A shame it just will fall down ........
Thanks for sharing - kindest regards Monika
