New on 500px : Mabry Mill, Blue Ridge Parkway (Infrared) by KenLane by KenLane

Mabry Mill is a watermill located at milepost 176.2 of Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County, Virginia. It is a tourist attraction mainly for the picturesque views of the mill itself. A short trail around the mill connects historical exhibits about life in rural Virginia. The trail allows visitors to view the gristmill, sawmill, and blacksmith shop.

Mabry Mill was built by Edwin Boston Mabry (E.B. Mabry). E.B. Mabry returned to Floyd County in 1903 and began the construction of the mill. It was first a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, then became a sawmill. By 1905 it was in operation as a gristmill. By 1910 the front part of the mill was completed and included a lathe for turning out wheel hubs, a tongue and groove lathe, a planer and a jig-saw. Between 1905 and 1914 E.B. Mabry bought adjacent tracts of land, mostly for the purpose of acquiring more water power. 1

During peak seasons, demonstrations of crafts are given by National Park Service volunteers at Mabry Mill.

New on 500px : Manteo Light by Andrew_v by Andrew_v

This was taken just before sunrise during a recent trip to the Outerbanks. This is the Manteo Lighthouse. It’s an awesome little lighthouse that sits on Shallowbag bay which is on the interior side of the Outer Banks closest to Nags Head. I actually managed to create this shot in between some light rain and as you can see from the sky, another storm was lined up to move in really soon.

I was actually in the OBX for a landscape photography workshop which was coming ot a close on this morning. I love the balance, and depth of this image and also the serenity and storm. There’s just a very interesting mix of elements going on. Technically, this is a 65 second long exposure taken using a 10-stop B+W nd filter with my D800 and a Nikon 24-70. Hope you enjoy! Looking forward to posting more from this trip soon.

A small mossy stream winds through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. After living on the west coast for a while now, I was amazed at how green and full of life everything was.

Fall along Big Creek in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This is one of those rare stream shots where the downstream angle actually works well. The Big Creek Trail is one of the most scenic I’ve been on in the park
