Changing Trees

Autumn is here and it is in full swing!

Earlier this week my wife and I drove up to rural Wisconsin to visit some family. It is a beautiful area and I’ve done it enough times that I have a route I take past a few abandoned houses, picturesque fields, produce markets and turn-of-the-century water mills. Even if I’m going up for the most trivial thing, I’ll bring my camera along.

So in driving home, I checked on Hyde’s Mill to see how it looks with the fall foliage, but en route we passed by a field exploding with color.

The Old Hyde Mill

It had been a few years since I stopped by Hyde’s Mill in rural Wisconsin. It isn’t the most convenient place to get to, located an hour outside of Madison about ten minutes off of a main road. Then, when you get there, the old mill is a difficult place to photograph because it is shrouded by trees and doesn’t face East or West. (It will never get that “perfect” morning or evening light.)

It is, however, a wonderfully tranquil location with deer roaming the nearby fields and the sound of water falling over the dam.

Hyde’s Mill

Hyde’s Mill is in the unincorporated township of, wait for it, Hyde, Wisconsin.  It’s about an hour west of Madison, Wisconsin and ten minutes off of a main road.  It’s very peaceful there.  I’ve stopped several times at all sorts of hours and occasionally someone will drive up, get out to take a picture, and be back on their way.  For the most part, however, it’s such a rural area that no one really stops by.
