Photo: "Cedar Creek Grist Mill"

This last year has taught me many things. I realized, once again, that when your mind is open to new adventures, a new adventure has the ability to land in your lap. It sounds so basic, but if you have tunnel vision and are only focused on one thing, it can be really difficult to see the things around you. 

This photograph is a mix of my love for historic/abandoned places and nature, but this was not an easy place to shoot. Maybe it was the day. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was the fact that I was trying to shoot just the mill. Whatever it was that caused me to stand there and absorb my surroundings for a while, allowed me to see the things around me and create this image.
