Collinsville

Collinsville is named after the family that harnessed the water of the Farmington River to power an axe factory and other tool making operations.

I return late tomorrow.  Thanks for visiting while I have been away.

Please visit James' blog, Weekend Reflections, to see other photos with reflections.

Very nice reflection. As always, I love all the brick. Hope you're enjoying a good respite. (Upon your return, don't forget to submit your receipts to Accounting in a timely manner.)

I love these old mill complexes. They take a back seat to the prototypical New England villages in the tourist brochures, but they played a huge role in the foundation of our region (country even) and they make for excellent photos. You captured this one very well.

I like the red color here;Incredible how flat the water is where there's the reflection, before becoming a small fall!

Looks like they keep the water clean too. Wonderful setting with trees and hill in background.

Great shot Jack! They probably needed a lot of axes in those days.
