John Cable Mill

View On Black


This was a difficult shot to get. It was mid-day and the sun was bright, and tons of tourists were going in and out of the mill. I waited quite a while until one lone little cloud moved across the sun and softened the light for a few seconds. My trusty assistant, Manuel, politely asked people to clear the bridge while I got the shot. Thanks, Manuel!


The Cable Mill was built in 1867 by John Cable. It processed logs, corn and wheat. It has been wonderfully preserved, and is one of the main attractions in Cades Cove.
