I recently showed you the chimney of the McArthur Woolen Mill. But that reminded me that there is an old and dilapidating water wheel contraption there. Unfortunately, it is falling apart, but I thought I might find some interesting little details to photograph.

More McArthur Mill
The machinery was farther from the road than I had thought. Even at maximum zoom, I couldn't get really close. This ↓ is what I could see. It has been edited and cropped a little bit, and as you can see, I was still not getting right into the detail.
My files are pretty big, so I was able to crop some more and also convert to b&w.
In the bitter cold, I was hoping for icicles, but there were none. I suppose one would need thawing causing dripping followed by freezing, and that is not what we have at present.
From where I was standing, I also pointed the camera upward to photograph the peak of the tower. I was working quickly in the cold, so I got what I could and skedaddled home.
I like the lines and textures, but a more symmetrical photo would have made am improvement. However, I don't think there was a better viewpoint available, not now in the snow right now anyway.
