The Old Pump House.

Thought that I’d take a short drive over to the Reading Watershed Lake this morning to see how much color there was in the area. There was some, but not like it usually gets later on this month. When the air gets much colder, this place is alive with Natures final good-bye.

The Old Reading Pump House was built around 1832 to supply the City with water. Over the many years the Pump House slowly started to fail, and was shut down. The Pump House no longer pumps water, but was left here as a icon to what once was. The Pump House was starting to fall apart, so the City had it re-furbished with new bricks, a roof, new railing, and a make-over inside. You can’t walk over on it, cause the gate is locked all the time. It does make for some great photo shots.

Pump House in the Fall

Here I changed my camera settings a bit. Winter is another time to capture this with the snow.

Some color.

What I did for this one is travel around the back roads to see if color was more available in spots. It was. Depends on where you go. Nature has no preference. Seems the higher elevations on the mountain show more.

Thank you for stopping by.

Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
