Mabry Mill

Mabry Mill on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia

Mabry Mill

Mabry Mill is one of the most photographed places on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It is historically interesting, as it was constructed in 1903, and has operated as a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, a sawmill, and a gristmill.  It is extremely picturesque, with the setting putting on various shows of color, depending on the season.  If you are ever fortunate enough to find yourself on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, be sure to spend a little time exploring Mabry Mill.

Field of Gold

This beautiful field of yellow drew my attention for days before the clouds were finally just right for a nice shot.  We were in and near Stowe, VT in the summer of 2010, and enjoyed the peace and tranquility that only Vermont can offer.  This photo represents that for me.  Hope I’ll get to revisit with a nice wide angle lens someday!  :)

Another shot from the tulip outing the other day, this yellow beauty was another of my favorites.  It was in a very large grouping of all yellow tulips.  About the only thing I love more than a tulip is a large group of tulips all of the same color and reaching for the sky in unison.  Shot late in the afternoon, the yellow of these tulips was very striking as it brought some cheer to a somewhat dreary Spring day.
