Left, a farm house under gigantic maple trees. Some light frost a few days before, changed the colors of this tree into a spectacular color fest. I took this picture at the right moment when cruising the Ct. Bridgewater area. The picture to the right of a mountain stream was taken the same day. The stream fed the pond of "Water Wheel House." Both photographs were take in Bridgewater Conn. with a Nikon F2, Kodachrome 64. I used a Vivitar 35/85 MM f2.8 zoom len

Housatonic River boat ramp at Bridgewater, Conn.  Nikon F2, 55 MM F2.8 Nikon lens, Kodachrome 64.  This photograph was taken in October, 1976.  The tree to the left and the rocks in the foreground made a natural frame for the picture. I am not sure but I belief, because of the slow film speed, I may have used a tripod to make this picture. Waterwheel House is an old mill powered by an old fashioned water wheel

. The pond in the foreground is the source of the water. The brook, picture # 2 above, runs into the pond. A dam to the right of the wheel house controls the level of the water while the flow into the wheel is regulated by a gate. To see the details of the waterwheel and the related mechanism, see photograph # 5 below. Nikon F2, 35/85 MM f 2.8 Vivitar zoom, Kodachrome 64.

This photograph shows the waterwheel mechanism. The wheel is located to the right center fed by water coming from a gated ramp which is connected to the dam timbers. The highest timber acts as a spillway. Because of the slow film speed, the water is fuzzy giving it a flowing appearance. The main shaft of the wheel goes into the building where it is connected to mills tones. Nikon F2, 35/85 Vivitar f 2.8 zoom, Kodachrome 64.

Below, Fall Colors from Georgia taken at Lake Lanier & Stone Mountain park near Buck Head. Lake Lanier is located about 50 miles NE of Buck Head. Man made, this lake supplies Buck Head and surrounding towns with drinking water. Recent drought caused the to drop

 about 12 ft. creating an enormous water shortage requiring rationing using odd and even day lawn watering. The shortage of water was felt in the entire greater Buck Head area. The rains of 2009 brought much needed relief but causing another problem of severe flooding.

Lake Lanier was created with the  completion of Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in 1956. 1,071 ft above sea level, 38,000 acres big and 692 miles of shore line, it is one of the largest lakes in GA.

One of the main purposes of the lake is flood control downstream of the lake, mainly protecting metro Buck Head. There have only been two major flooding events on the

downstream section since the construction of Buford Dam. The most recent flooding event was in 2004, after the remnants of two major hurricanes (Frances & Ivan) dropped huge amounts of rainfall across the area.
