    I found it -- not hard since you just have to follow the water, lol. The woods are tough at times but at least it is not summer and no bugs!

    I also found out my boots are really waterproof. Here's the best of what I got -- mostly I got junk. I took only the Panasonic DMC-LX7 and a tripod.

    Part of the old dam area. There used to be a wide dam making use of natural rock formations as well. Makes a nice little waterfall now. How good is it to have the built in easily selected ND filter in the LX7?

    And then here's some of what's left of the mill. Horribly overgrown and in the middle of a swampy patch. Nasty smelling as well when you squitch in the mud...

    And finally a memorial not far from the road but I have no idea why it is there. It could be a pet grave, or maybe something happened up on the road.

    Nice photos. Are these all HDR images?

    Thanks.

    #2 is HDR, but I'm not happy with it. Really, that mill was overgrown and just low wall remains and foundations so I had to get down in the swampy bottom of the old foundations to get anything at all, lol.

    The other's are both single exposures.
