Photographer shares shots of Mount Albion, water plant

Albion photographer Bruce Landis rented an airplane and a pilot for a day last month and took numerous landscape shots in Orleans County, right when the fruit trees were in bloom.

Landis, owner of Photos by Bruce and Associates, shared photos of the tower at Mount Albion Cemetery. The 68-foot-high tower was built in 1876 as a memorial to the 500 people from the county who died in the Civil War.

Landis also flew over Carlton by the Lake Ontario shoreline and captured this photo of the Village of Albion Water Treatment plant on Wilson Road. The bubbles in the water are at the end of the intake pipe that draws in the water for the plant.
