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.

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.

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.

 

Conowingo Dam, Maryland

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...

An old dam no longer in use. Water flows at its free will.

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.

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

~Chickamauga Dam is a hydroelectric dam on the Tennessee River in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. The dam is owned and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority, which built the dam in the late 1930s as part of a New Deal era initiative to improve navigation and bring flood control and economic development to the Tennessee Valley. The dam impounds the 36,240-acre (14,670 ha) Chickamauga Lake and feeds into Nickajack Lake. Chickamauga Dam is named for the Chickamauga, a politically detached branch of the Cherokee whose chief village was located just north of the dam site during the 18th century.[1] The tribe's name has also been applied to several streams in the Chattanooga area, as well as an important American Civil War battle and a sandbar that existed at the dam site prior to its construction.~

Monday morning's fog created a nice mood at Penman's Dam

DAM (Denver Art Museum).

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.

Monticello Dam is a 304-foot (93 m) high concrete arch dam in Napa County, California, United States constructed between 1953 and 1957. The dam impounded Putah Creek to create Lake Berryessa in the Vaca Mountains.

 

Lake Berryessa is currently the seventh largest man-made lake in California. Water from the reservoir primarily supplies agriculture in the Sacramento Valley downstream. The dam is noted for its classic, uncontrolled morning-glory type spillway.[1] The diameter at the lip is 72 ft (22 m). Locally, the spillway is also known as 'The Glory Hole'.[3]

 

To the south is Putah Creek State Wildlife Area.

The Kurobe Dam is Japan’s largest arch dam, completed in 1963. With a height of 186m, it remains the tallest dam in Japan. It discharges 10m3 of water per second, and is a tourist attraction between late June and mid-October. As the observation deck provides a grand view of gushing water creating a great cloud of spray, more than 1 million tourists visit the dam every year.

As always, thanks for any comments, views or favorites, they are much appreciated!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

The Derwent Dam was built between 1901-1916. During the Second World War, the reservoir was used by the crews of the 617 Squadron for practising the low-level flights needed for Operation Chastise (commonly known as the "Dam Busters" raids), due to its similarity to the German dams.

To top today off, as we stood on the other side of the dam a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire gave an awesome pass between the towers as it made its way from south to north, the buzz was amazing!
