From a bicycle trip.
An old distillery from around 1890.

Mieszkow is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Jarocin, within Jarocin County, Greater Poland Voivodeship, in west-central Poland. It lies approximately 7 kilometres north of Jarocin and 57 km south-east of the regional capital Poznan.

In 1891 owner of Mieszków was Wladyslaw Taczanowski.
With the invasion of Poland and the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939, Mieszkow was occupied by Nazi Germany. It was renamed Halbstadt and then Mühlenfelde. The town was administered as part of the district or county (kreis) of Jarotschin within the Reichsgau Wartheland. Following the arrival of the Red Army in January 1945 and the end of the war, it became part of the People's Republic of Poland.

Good morning, Krzysztof
The colors and the composition are superb! Very very picturesque landscape, good combination of the old architecture and the Nature.

Bonjour, cher Christophe,
La prise de vue est d'une excellente qualité, la preuve que les bâtiments industriels peuvent exprimer également leur intérêt.
Très belle réussite.

Hello ,
A great subject and an amazing sky for a very attractive picture .

Hello Krzysztof,
I love this kind of industrial architecture from the decades around the turn of the last century. The red brick building and the tall chimney are well placed among the trees behind the bend of the river. The clouds are very impressive and very nicely exposed.
Kind regards,

Nice composition in perfect colors. The clouds are amazing. Well seen.


Hi Krzysztof
Memories are evoked! Well composed and a beautiful scene, wonderful character to the building and delicious content!
Excellent shot, Congrats
Best regards

Hi Chris,great example of industry of the past,the high chemney is still there and the pic is truly beautiful,taken in the best light and under this fantastic sky,well done! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Witaj Krzysztof,

You have composed this photograph very well, so that the focal distillery is strongly placed in the frame, whilst the gentle curve of the river creates a leisurely guide.
I think the billowing bank of clouds has a tremendous impact, separating the building from the blue sky and making a very effective backdrop.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

ciao Krzysztof,
very good view of this factory whit water, nice blue and cloudy sky, very good the soft sunlight,
very well done,
ciao, Giacomo

Hello Krzysztof, industrial architecture, and it would seem to be well preserved.
It makes a good focal point for your picture with its' tall chimney. Is the water a mill dam, used by the distillery?
Taken in a good light, the subtle reflections on the rippled water add to the scene.
Regards Jean.

Hi Krzysztof,

The chimney is an eye-catcher. The point of view is showing the details of the old distilery. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice dya.

Cześc Krfzysiu, Całkiem duży ceglany budynek tej destylarni. Ale najładniejsze tutaj sa te urocze chmurki.

Pozdrawiam MAłgorzata

Bonjour Krzysztof,

Je constate que tu as laissé tomber la croisière pour faire un petit tour à bicyclette. Tu peux ainsi prendre plus de temps pour apprécier les choses. Les vieilles cheminées industrielles sont toujours intéressantes.

Czesc Krzysztof,

Piekna praca,
Pozdrawiam serdecznie

Again a nice bicycle trip my friend, we get a nice view about the old distillery from around 1890.
Also wonderful sky with pleasant clouds.
You chose an excellent angle and lovely exposure.
Create an excellent depth and perspective.
Also a wonderful panorama about the area.
Nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Bravo et amitié

Hi Krzysztof
Superbe couleurs du bâtiment industrielle, bon POV, fantastique ciel, très belle présentation

Hello Krzysztof.
Very good composition, the wooded landscape on the edge of this river or pond has its charm and the old brick factory makes a nice contrast with its tall chimney, the building seems to be fine and could be used for some use.
A magnificent color that gives a lot of chromatic richness to the image.
Have a good start to the week.
Very best regards, my friend.

Ciao Krzysztof
bella la vecchia distilleria e interessante condivisione, ma la foto ha una bellezza tutta sua, la composizione è splendida, grazie alle bellissime nuvole.

Hello Krzysztof,
Personally I think the clouds make your picture of the industrial heritage so very beautiful.
Also the composition, the colours and the sharpness of this well balanced image are excellent.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Krysztof

The tower of the distillery is the stand-out feature here (literatlly and figuratively). Great light and framing does teh rest. Good shot, thanks for sharing it.


Hello Krzysztof,
This is a fine view of the old distillery. What I'd like to know is what they distilled there (vodka?) and what happened to the business. 👍👍
