Lights of Hope Luminaria Display, Plimoth Grist Mill, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



After the recent Christmas Tree Lighting and Winter Lights 5K race in downtown Plymouth, I wandered nearby to the Plimouth Grist Mill (yes, it is spelled with an "i") to see the lights and luminaria. I experimented with a few different processing effects in the following images.

The original mill, formerly the Jenny Grist Mill, was built on this site in 1636.  The current mill was built in 1970 on the same location. The Plimoth Grist Mill is a working mill that uses water power to mill organic corn into cornmeal on 200-year old French Buhr millstones.

Handheld point-and-shoots are always a challenge in near darkness but, it is fun to try. (Shutter 1/125, f/1.8, ISO 12800).
