Photo Taken by Frank Guarnuccio Photography
"On July 6 2013, I was on my way back from photographing the annual Dutchess County Balloon Festival launch in Poughkeepsie, NY, and decided to stop at the site of the Gomez Mill House in Marlboro, NY. Having heard about this beautiful place, I was stunned as I made my way down the road to the parking area. What truly caught my eye was Hunter's Mill, built by Dard Hunter. As the sun rose above the treeline, I managed to capture this image of Hunter's Mill. It remains one of my favorite captures, and I love sharing it." [From Wikipedia: Dard Hunter, a paper-maker associated with the Arts and Crafts movement, bought the Mill House in 1909 and built a small paper mill on the property in the shape of a Devonshire cottage, complete with thatched roof, where he taught students the arts of pre-industrial paper-making, printing and publishing for the next seven years.]
