2,498 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a rustic mill next to a stream in the woods; nature photograph created by John Freeman in Crystal Colorado

The Crystal Mill is an 1892 wooden powerhouse located on an outcrop above the Crystal River in Crystal, Colorado, United States. The mill is situated in one of the most beautiful, picturesque sites in the Colorado Rockies and reputed to be the most photographed area in Colorado state. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

Situated east of Marble, Colorado about 6 miles up a rugged 4x4 former mining trail road used by miners in the late 1800's, the mill is near the ghost town of Crystal at an elevation of 8,950 ft. The trail continues into the Elk mountains to through an area known as the "Devils Punch Bowl" and has a reputation of being the most deadly back country 4x4 trail in Colorado.

The mill was constructed in 1893 by George C. Eaton and B.S. Phillips, promoters of the Sheep Mountain Tunnel and Mining Company. The penstock powered the air compressor. In turn, the enormous compressor ran drills in the nearby Sheep Mountain and Bear Mountain gold mines. The drills were used to bore holes in the mine walls for the placement of dynamite. After the dynamite was detonated, the miners removed the whole ore.

Even after the operation shut down in 1917, the site has been preserved with the help of the Gunnison and Aspen historical societies and today The Crystal Mill remains an attraction for the city of Crystal.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.
