In 1903, E.B. Mabry began construction on the now famous and frequently photographed Mabry Mill, located on the Blue Ridge Parkway in the southern part of Virginia. Construction of the mill was completed in 1910, but it functioned as a blacksmith and wheelright shop, as well as a gristmill, while still being built.
I visited the mill on a very cold morning in March. The temperature was around 18º F during my visit, extremely windy, and icicles had formed on the race of the mill the night before. I was very lucky to be there to capture the mill in this state.
This is the water wheel of Mabry Mill, covered in many icicles on a cold blustery morning.
