This was shot last Fall with the S2 and Nikkor 17-35mm 2.8. The mill was used 100+ years ago to provide air for the drills and tools in the various mines throughout the Crystal, Colorado area. It also turned the wheels for a large stamping mill which stood just to the left in this photo.

The mill is one of the most photographed places in Colorado, ranking number 2 behind the Maroon Bells.

The road, which is really a goat trail:lol:, is rough and for 4 wheel drives only, which helps to keep out the riff raff.

Excellent! The color, texture, composition, exposure are all top notch. Love the yellow aspens with the bright blue sky and the texture of rock and clouds, the weathered wood of the building. Everything comes together to make it a stand out shot. It deserves a large print, matted and framed and shown in a gallery.

Thanks, I apprciate it. This one has been printed at 24 x 36 and came out looking beautiful. It is framed and matted and ready to hang!

SleepingBear - what a great photo. The colors just blow me away. Did you use any filters when you took this shot?

Thanks. I used a Circ Pol and Split ND, both of the screw on type. I now use the Singh-Ray ND Grad filters and Circ Pol and look forward to returning to the mill with my new filter system.
