One of the most photographed sites along the Blue Ridge Parkway is Mabry Mill, a 1910 watermill run by the National Park Service and located at milepost 176.2. In addition to the Mill, there is a short trail around the mill which connects historical exhibits about life in rural Virginia. This day though … the tree stole the show!
As I traveled home last Sunday, I kept hoping that I’d be able to stop and capture some of Fall’s gorgeous colors. With time running short, I pushed on to the house. I turned into the driveway and slammed on the brakes. Right there, in my own yard, were the colors I was seeking.
For my contribution to Monochromia this week, I converted the scene to B&W.
Pretty stunning either way, right?
