Motor Mill. I don't know the history on this mill, the bridge was swept away a few years ago and the new bridge was put in a year or so ago I believe. It's still a unique building made of local limestone. Several other buildings are on the site. Will send them along later on. This mill is located in Elkader, IA

I'm such a fan of mills and bridges. Carol, I really like the contrast of the mill against the trees, and you did a superb job on the composing!

I miss my days in Iowa and the Midwest. I wish I had been a more avid photographer in my youth. You have fertile territory for photographers with your skills. I am reminded of the work you posted nearly a decade ago which was pretty good. However, this shot demonstrates that your work is stellar. Faves for me.

Didn't know that Elkader, Clayton County, Iowa, hadn't these 'treasures', Carol! I'm curious for the other ones
This one is seen and captured perfectly however, my friend!
