Travel photo of the day: The Old Mill in autumn

Submitted by Randy Clegg / UGC

The Old Mill, Berry College, Rome, Ga.

Randy Clegg shared this photo of the Old Mill at Berry College, a small university near Rome, Ga.

While the shot is one few readers have seen before, it won last week's It's a Snap gallery with an overwhelming number of votes.

No doubt those who voted for the photo were fond of its gorgeous autumn colors and the contrast of the wooden waterwheel. The mill was constructed in 1930 and was later gifted to the college. The mill has an interesting history, which you can learn about here.

Clegg took the photo in November 2007 while visiting his daughter at school.

"The fall colors that year were especially vibrant and stunning," he told TODAY.com. "I have been back to campus for three of the four years since then to try to capture more of the beauty of the fall season, but no other year has been nearly as beautiful as that year."

Proving that travel photos don't always have to come from exotic locales, Clegg added that the Berry campus has "endless" photo opportunities.

"From the ... large stone buildings donated by Henry Ford, to the modern, stylish dorms and other buildings, there is a wide range of architecture to shoot," he said. "There is also a great deal of natural beauty in the oak-lined fields, the forests, lakes, and mountains, and in the hundreds of deer that live among the students."
