Although most of my mill images were taken in Lawrence, I have been spending some time recently exploring Lowell, another mill city not not too far away.  And like Lawrence, Lowell was a textile center during the Industrial Revolution, and is full of many beautiful old mills.

This image was taken this past weekend on a photo walk in Lowell with a small group of like-minded local photographers.  The heat and humidity kept the walk short, but I did come away with a few images I like, including this one.  The high clouds were moving fairly quickly, so I decided to throw on the 10 stop ND to try for some long exposure mill magic.  I wish I could have exposed this longer than 13 seconds, but the sky was just too bright.  Maybe next time.

    I like the perspective that with the clouds gives dynamism to the shot.
