Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe August 31, 2003

Wow.. Sob, sob, blubber...Guess this means the rest of us better pack up and go back to bed for this month..Incredible shot, incredible buzz . This is just amazing!! #183189

Kathleen Clemons August 31, 2003

Just when I was thinking I had a favorite from this series (yesterday's) you go and post another stunner! :) #183244

Murry Grigsby August 31, 2003

THanks, Darren, Shirley, Jeff, Gordon, Char, Bill, Carolyn and Kath :0) Well my e-mail is down again and Grace has brought us a weekend washout so thank goodness for BP! I'm attaching the sharpened but unbuzzed scan, Gordon, and another shot from near the mill. The amazing part is that there is a large parking lot and visitors center just out of these photos to the left. It can be very crowded and you can still get uncluttered shots of the mill. Like I said, it gets my vote for the best mill site in the USA. Quit your blubbering, Carolyn. I think Oksana has this month sewed up? #183271

Susana Matos August 31, 2003

you make me dream about autumn and all these colors. I´ll be outside all the time trying to get colorful shots like yours.
You do live in a beautiful place!
