This was shot on my second day at the mill and surrounding area. I had been shooting elsewhere and decided to pop in for “one more” shot before breakfast.
There were four other photographers there. They were all hogging up the “best spots” to shoot from at this angle so I had to make do. I have no problem with that as they were there first; BUT: Not ONE of them was making a photo. Not one of them offered to move for a moment. They were all yapping about the merits of photoshop over lightroom, and who had the bigger you-know-what while their rigs were planted on their tripods.
A few words to those photographers: If you are not going to shoot, show some courtesy, and get the heck out of the way!

      I think them hogging the spot was so that you could acheive this shot, absolutely beautiful.

      I cannot imagine that they had better places, for me and not knowing the place it is perfect. I am going to vote
