Gile Park Falls – Merillan, Wisconsin

I carry my camera bag when I travel by car.  There are too many times that I’ve seen something that I’d like to shoot, but I didn’t have a camera with me.  Tonight I had a camera when I drove past the Gile Park in Merillan Wisconsin.  It was about 6:30 – twilight.  I was impressed by the color of the ice, the yellow incandescent light and the blue of evening.  The water flowing out of Oakwood Lake is rich in iron and I suspect that this contributes to the strange color of the ice.

Too bad they knocked down the old mill building that was standing last year.
