Eastern Maine Camera Club is starting a new Blog series highlighting places to shoot around Maine and beyond. The hope is to create ideas of where to find a place to make your creative side be very happy. Maine is a beautiful place.
Maine Forest and Logging Museum. "Located on Blackman Stream in Bradley, Leonard’s Mills is at the actual site of an early pioneer settlement, identified by the remains of a stone dam and the foundations of several houses. Today, Leonard’s Mills is “alive” once again, as the Museum is represented by an authentic reconstruction of a logging and milling community of the 1790s."
The grounds are open every day during daylight hours. Blackman Stream winds through the grounds with a historic mill and covered bridge. Bring a polarizer. The stream makes a nice leading line to the buildings. On Thursday mornings until October the buildings are open. I have practiced HDR in the building. Bring a tripod.
From Bangor and Brewer, take ME Route 9 from Brewer 4 miles towards Eddington. Turn onto ME Route 178 and follow towards Milford for another 4.5 miles. A large sign will be on the left but the entrance and Government Road will be on the the right directly across from the sign.
