Cracked Lake

Lake Ray Hubbard after a drought.

Rowlett, Texas. Actually this is the City of Dallas while you are at the lake. Even the bridges have signs that say entering Dallas, leaving Dallas, only while you are above water, this is one of the lakes where Dallas gets its drinking water. When first built, it was called Ray Hubbard Reservoir.

    Hi There,
    We really liked your photo and have used it on our site,

    The site is in Spanish but deals with all renewable energy issues. The article is about desrtification of Spain.

    I hope we have accredited you in the correct way and thanks again for the great shot.

    Please contact me if needed on

    Thanks again,

  • MrDAT 4y

    D200 + 10.5mm or N6006?
  • Terry Shuck 4y

    MrDAT this was a D200 and the Nikon 10.5 lens.
  • MrDAT 4y

    Oh, I ask because the EXIF data says D200, but your tags say N6006 and your other photos are in the Film group.
  • Terry Shuck 4y

    Thanks Mr. DAT. I removed the 8008s tag and the film tag. I verified that it was with the D200.
