Crystal Mills
Photo By Mark Kay

  • Title: Crystal Mills
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Marble CO
  • Nearest Town: Crystal CO
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: This is an image of the old Crystal MIll in Crystal CO. This mill was just outside a small mining town founded in 1880. Peak population was about 400 in 1886. Now a few buildings remain and town is shut down in winter. It is quite a journey getting their by car. I was staying in SnowMass and drove the route to the area. It took me about an hour to go the last couple of miles. I was told not to enter when raining but it started about 30 minutes into the drive. By the time I got to the old Mill, it had stopped raining and the clouds started to clear making the light much better than I had anticipated based on the time of the day. The exposure was about 4 seconds. Minimal processing in Phocus and CS4. Minor cropping, curves, and USM. I have to stay the journey was worth it. On the way, I stopped a few times to try to get a shot and got attacked by a large colony of ants. Overall, it was worth it.

    Thank you very much, Alena! Before planning your visit, do make sure to check park hours, as this area is not open to the public year-round.

    Lovely composition of greenery and water motion, Alena. I especially like the textured waterfall curtain effect you have captured.
