I would prefer some closer views of that lovely autumn colour JJ, but must say your water looks like water, not milk.

A very pleasing photo. I am glad you included the plant in the bottom left corner, it kind of echoes the beautiful colouring of the trees in the background.

Nice shot, although I had envisioned dams being much taller.....I guess I'm thinking of hydro-electric dams.

Nice shot, JJ. I agree with John J about the little green plant lower left of the picture. You don't miss much.

Saly, you are correct about the hydro-electric dams, they are enormous, and tall.

Not my picture!

The dam JJ shot reminds me of what we called a "spillway". It's purpose was to allow water to escape the reservoir. Not to create power of any kind.

Sorry, JJ, if I have overstepped, please tell me and I will take down this post.
