Default Weather Derwent Dam

this is where the Dam Busters practised and its hard to believe how low they must have been flying. it can also be seen the bad weather coming in very quickly. just after this we had to run for the car and that was it for the day then

Dam busters? Interesting history of this dam. Amazing how quickly weather can change.

Thanks for sharing the photo, and your weather, Wave01.

The greyness of those clouds do 'tell' of impending bad weather.

The photo tends to lack a bit of contrast.. but it could be to do with weather haze?

I guess 'dam busters' - is part of a war-time manoeuvre?

Best wishes

Paul
