I’m over at this place again, yesterday, because I wanted to get “out there” and do some shooting with my camera. I seem to be drawn here to the Grings Mill area many times hoping that I’ll find something different. Usually most all of it remains the same, except when the Seasons start changing. Soon the leaves will change color and Fall will be here. It is one of my favorite times of the year. Water here is a bit on the high side because of the rain we’ve had before. It’s usually not this high.
At the far end of the bridge that cross’s over the Schyukill River is this old Pump House. The Pump House dates back to the middle 1800’s and was used, at one time, to pump water from the river into the Union Canal that once was here. It stayed in operation until the Union Canal was no longer needed. The Pumps that were here have been removed. They are no longer needed. Now, the old house serves as a storage area for the Park Service.
It was such a nice beautiful, somewhat cool day, that I could not resist pressing the shutter button once more.
