Spread the word about Crystal River

Crystal, Colorado
The Crystal Mill in Colorado is certainly not the easiest to get to, but always well worth it. This iconic, piece of history – a former water power station from 1892 – has since become one the most photographed sites in the state, a real classic that only a lucky few ever get to witness up close. Its mesmerizing, rustic wooden construction is something out of the American Frontier era, and I am blown away every time I see it. Traveling up to the mill all morning was no small feat. Even with a proper truck at our disposal, the insanely rocky road made it seem like we were rolling over some abandoned goat track. Thankfully, by the time we made it to our destination, the skies had opened up just enough to let some really nice light in through the clouds. As the river rushed passed the scene, I set my tripod on the opposite bank in order to take in as much as possible. With a long exposure, I was able to add true texture to the raging water in the foreground, which complemented the tranquil atmosphere above. This image symbolizes the dual nature of Crystal’s landscape – a perfect mixture of peril and natural beauty.
