Continuing on from my last vlog about my trip to Wisconsin, this is the second but almost a mini vlog from Day 2. I took some time to research on the wide web what other locations where nearby where I could get some interesting shots.

I came across many waterfalls or landscape spots but many were 4 hours away from Madison and I didn’t feel comfortable driving this far solo just in case I run into any trouble.

I came across this old abandoned mill known as Hyde’s Mill which was about 40mins away from where I was. So I decided to drive down there and check it out. I gathered it would be interesting as it had rained during the night and so there should be some water flowing through the Mill Creek.

The drive out there was quite easy as I simply headed west on the US-14 via University Avenue and then take a left turn to head to Hyde’s Mill. I did have a small challenge that there was no cell coverage in that area so if I’d lost my way I would be in a little bit of trouble. However, I’d like to think that my sense of direction is pretty good so I kept going.

Eventually, arriving at the location I was the only one there. I saw a farmer working close by in the farm but that was it. I did wish that I had my drone with me but nonetheless I was happy to photograph this location.

I knew due to the gritty nature of this location, I want to shoot multiple brackets using my Canon 80D. I setup and shot multiple different compositions that I would then later be able to process on my computer using Aurora HDR 2018.

 So in this vlog I take you to the location and then bring you back to my studio to show you one of the edits using Aurora HDR 2018. If you like this video, please give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel via the link below.
