Hodgson Water Mill

Some of my recent photos have been of not so old grist mills. Missouri is dotted with a lot of original mills that have been preseved by local benefactors and are open to the public. The rust red Hodgson Water Mill is nestled into a bluff above a spring that gushes up from far below the earth’s surface. It’s not far from Dora, Missouri and may look familiar at first glance—that’s because its image is used all over the world on Hodgson Mill Flour Product packages. It is also one of the most photographed mills in Missouri, and it’s easy to see why.

These preserved mills make great scenes for photographers willing to go find them. Stats: ISO 100, 19mm, f/14, @ 1/10 sec. A tripos was used due to the longer exposure.
