This is taken below the Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River in the early blue hour lighting. On this morning the dam was not operating yet so the water was a pretty mirror.

Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression.

Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River in the early morning light on a cloudy day. This is before they turned on the generators, so the rocks below the dam can be seen. Once on, this area was too be under water. When the alarms go off, it is time to move to higher ground. Needless to say that happened while I was taking a several minute exposure ... in the middle of it ... of course!

Extended the shutter in the low light to smooth out the reflection.

I returned to Lake Overholser - my last pic was #118 last Sunday. Back then it was 80 degrees and I strolled around in shorts and a tee-shirt, which pretty much everyone else did.

 

Today the wind chills brought it down to 30 degrees (yes a 50 degree shift) and not a soul was there. I wore jeans a tee shirt and very light jacket (yeah, I didn't prepare for freezing weather).

 

I really love taking landscape shots - my favorite subject to take, but I love it even more on rainy, windy, blustery days full of foreboding clouds...

 

What a difference a few days make

Another capture of the lit up dam along the Susquehanna River.

This is the North Saskatchewan River just before it hits Abraham Lake, which is a reservoir created by the Big Horn Dam.

 

This was taken yesterday when I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra Herber and Jim Henry. They are both fantastic photographers and I've been drooling over their photostreams for a while now. It was fantastic to meet them and great to shoot with them.

I was bored last night, so I went downtown and took some pictures, here is one. This is not HDR, it's a single 5 second exposure.

Thirlmere Dam. The hill in sight is Great How, looks an easy climb for possibly a good view along Thirlmere :-)

Damflask reservoir was built as one of a group of reservoirs in the Bradfield area to supply both fresh drinking water and a guaranteed supply of running water to the population and industries respectively of Sheffield. It was completed in 1896 with the dam walls being constructed of local stone. It takes it's name from Damflask village which was washed away in the Great Sheffield Flood of 11th March 1864. The village was never rebuilt after the flood because plans were already in hand to construct the reservoir

Alder Dam is located on the Nisqually River in Washington State. When it was completed in 1945, it was one of the tallest dams in the nation, measuring 330 feet high and 1,600 feet long. The powerhouse has two 25,000-kilowatt turbine generators.

Loch Quoich Dam, Shearer and Annand, 1955, engineers, Sir William Halcrow and Partners The largest of its kind when built for the North of Scotland Hydro Electric Board, at 12 5 ft high and 1,050 ft long.

Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona in the United States, near the town of Page. The dam was built to provide hydroelectricity and flow regulation from the upper Colorado River Basin to the lower. Its reservoir is called Lake Powell, and is the second largest artificial lake in the country, extending upriver well into Utah. The dam is named for Glen Canyon, a colorful series of gorges, most of which now lies under the reservoir.

 

Construction of Glen Canyon Dam started in 1956 and was not finished until 1966. When the reservoir filled, the dam began to deliver a regulated flow of water downstream and a supply of electricity to the region. In 1983, major floods nearly led to the dam's collapse, but disaster was averted by a close margin. By suppressing floods and other factors that once characterized the Colorado, the dam has led to major physical and ecological changes in the lower river. Controversy continues over the effects both positive and negative of the dam, which has also been antagonized in many literary works.

 

Thank you for your comments.

The Maguga Dam is a dam on the Komati River in Swaziland. It is 115 meters high and is located 11 kilometers south of Piggs Peak. The dam was completed in 2001.

 

The dam embankment comprises approximately 800 000m3 of clay, 2 800 000m3 of granite rock and 43 000m3 of filter material. It has an overall height of 115 meters, a crest length of 870 meters and a base width of 400 meters.

 

Because the dam is located within a region influenced by cyclones, it has been designed to withstand a probable maximum flood of 15000 m³/s. The 180m long labyrinth spillway is designed to pass a flood of 7800 m³/s without damage representing a return flood of 200 years.

 

The Maguga Dam received the South African Institution of Civil Engineering award for most outstanding civil engineering achievement in the International Category for 2001. The Maguga Dam Joint Venture received the South African Association of Consulting Engineers (SAACE) Glenrand MIB Golden Jubilee award in the Technical Excellence Category for 2002.

Looking down onto the spillway of the dam...

Conowingo Dam in the early blue hour light ... just as the eagles were starting to get ready to fish. Captured this while waiting for the light to get brighter.

A little reservoir near Alexandra. I only have a laptop with an expired PS cloud on here so this is just resized in MS Paint and that is it.

This dam was built in the 1830's to power a mill. The height of the dam is 30 feet (9 meters).

 

Long exposure

The light was just perfect. I haven't done anything to this image at all.

El Villar Dam, Puentes Viejas, Madrid, Spain (1992)

In the early morning, the eagle snatched the fish near the Conowingo Dam and then came down river with its prize before turning towards the trees. This allowed for some isolation of the eagle against the structure there ... a different view to show the surroundings, and how human interaction has impacted these eagles' lives to help feed them.

 

For the several years that I have been there I have been waiting to get a capture like this that places the eagle in the Dam sights, and wondering if I could get one with the large sign that is on the Dam over the road that crosses it. Of course the sign is backwards from this vantage point on the river shoreline ... but nothing says you cannot mirror the capture afterwards :))

 

That post to come, as the elements all came together as not only did the eagle pass right in front of the sign ... it had a fish and was pointing in my direction.

 

This capture here also shows how well the 7D Mark-II performs as this was exposed at ISO 4000 in the low light conditions (cloudy morning with just a hint of sunlight, as can be seen on the sign lightly).
