Canon Powershot SX200 on Epic


This historic Sawmill was built in the year 1863, and restored in 1955 & 2005.
This 8 sided mill is powered by 4 vanes of 22.5 meter length (74 foot ) each, and drives 3 huge saw blades.
Now a days the mill is operated by a group of volunteers, who run the mill as a museum (open for public on saterday and tuesday). On the photo you can see the volunteers hoisting in a tree trunk from the water reservoir.

Unfortunately the mill started rotating again when the shooting was about halfway. I tried timing the rotation in order to catch the last right hand vane in horizontal position ( took about 30 extra photo's on that attempt). Since I used a large overlap for such purposes, I was able to reconstruct the vane in the air. I will try to patch up the messy reflection in the water on the finished photo before printing on canvas.
