ABC Wednesday - D is for Dam Tower



D is for Dam Tower............



dam and dam tower



I have done several posts in the past that have featured this dam, but all the images of this piece of architecture were always taken from the walkway along the top of the dam.

This time we were down in the park, and even though the sun wasn't at the best position in the sky for this photo, I was still able to get a shot of it.

The whole thing looks so small from this angle, but it is actually quite massive.

You can see the waterline on the tower as to how high the flood waters have gotten in this area.

And those pine trees on the left of the image - I have seen the water so high that they were completely covered.

The forces of Mother Nature are quite awesome!








This is the eighth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
