First, the moving image at right is a panoramic shot of a Rural neighborhood and the Crystal River. This is a series, pieced together, of about 140 degrees of rotation of the camera on a tripod. You can tinker with the display by putting your mouse pointer on the image and moving it around. Have fun!
This trip was not part of the old photography tours. I was longing to do some autumn shooting, and had promised a friend I'd teach her how to use her new camera and frame shots. Our outing proved to be a triumphant one. We had glorious weather and the colors were spectacular.
Above is the covered bridge on the grounds of the Red Mill. We were standing under a crab apple tree. I wish the camera had been able to capture more depth, as it was a beautifully layered scene.
Below the moving image is the mill canal in Rural. The reflections on the water were so pretty. They are exceptional in almost every water shot we took that day.
One of the beautifully restored antique homes in Rural, I love the red color.
A hill forms a colorful backdrop on one side of this picturesque little village.
We visited a delightful shop in nearby Fremont called Riversong Studio. The owner is very creative with the arrangements of her wares, so the grounds and store were like touring a gorgeous country garden.
The red barn is not the store, but provided a very nice background for displays.
More colorful reflections, this time on the Red Mill Pond. The little dam is right of center.
Graceful Radley House, in Rural, is surrounded by black walnut trees.
The rocky cliffs and escarpment in the Readfield area are, I believe, what the UW publication, "The Physical Geography of Wisconsin," calls the Magnesium Escarpment. Autumn colors on the escarpment were very lovely.
I've always wanted to stay a night or two at the Crystal River Inn Bed and Breakfast/ Andrew Potts House in Rural. Have yet to do so.
Lastly, the Crystal meanders away from town, through the woods.
