A chilly sunny day in December not a day to be stuck indoors there are too many grey days at the moment. So Rod and I decided to visit Cutt Mill again. I wanted to take some more pictures of the mill, last time I took my pictures with my infrared camera (see the post Walk to Cutt mill) so this time I wanted to use my ordinary camera. I knew the sun would be in the right direction behind my back as I looked at the mill in the late morning. This time I didn’t walk from Sturminster but we drove down to the mill, a very narrow lane and at the end you could just about turn around. It was quite wet but not as bad a it could be after rain.

Before walking round to the front of the mill we walked round the side where the old sluice gates were. The board walkway was a bit precarious with missing slats but we managed to get there and back safely and I took the view of them up the river. Then round to the front to take various views of the mill, there was light cloud about which added to most of the images. I enjoyed the hour we spent at the mill it was nice to take winter images with the trees without leaf and with the vegetation died back. I’m sure I could return many times and take different pictures each time, a beautiful place.
