Rosemary Buffoni 5/17/2005 6:15:17 AM

Again, thanks everyone for a wonderful welcome. Nobi, it is good to see you here as well and I look forward to seeing your work too. Cathy, the water runs very sporadically at the Mill-it is a matter of waiting and hoping to catch it. It only ran for a few seconds as is - I was lucky to be set up and waiting and waiting and waiting...lol.

Larry Newman 5/21/2005 9:16:26 PM

What a mixture of enchanted surprise and heartfelt disappointment! Your shots were a wonderfully charming experience, especially the mill, but I was sad to see there were not more! Let's get some more up and showing!

The Mill was indeed a stunning and beautiful piece. Being a westerner the beauties of your neck of the woods is a bit foriegn to me but certainly not beyond my appreciation. I hope you can share more shots with us soon.

-Larry in Boulder #1376434

Cora Miller 5/22/2005 8:39:12 PM

Hi Ro, I didn't realize you began posting here too....welcome!

Your patience was well rewarded, as the flowing water adds such a wonderful touch to the entire composition. The movement provides a great contrast to the perfectly still lake and is a beautiful compliment to those vibrant fall leaves! Quite an enchanting shot! #1383205

Alan Martindale 6/8/2005 1:46:23 AM

Lovely picture, lovely place, lovely that it still exists!
There's a ruin, near our cottage, of a stone mill and waterwheel, the reservoir that fed the wheel long since filled-in, and only those intrested (like me) can recognise the remains and appreciate a life that existed in the english countryside some 250 years ago. I just wish someone had captured it, as you have done with your little gem, long before "20th century progress" i.e. a motorway, destroyed a part of my local heritage forever. your photo has this extra meaning for me....thanks Alan #1444013

This is one of the most stunning photos I've ever seen Rosemary. Perfectly composed with great clarity! This reminds me of what Thomas Kincade would use as a reference for one of his paintings. If your unfamiliar with his work, just type his name and google...MAGNIFICENT!! #3723837
