Near to Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England, Thruscross Reservoir sits in the Washburn Valley. The village of West End was flooded as part of the filling. Three further reservoirs exist downstream.
This view, because I’ve shot it against a light sky, belies just how black and forbidding the water looks from the upside of the dam. A particularly windy day (perishing) has given the water a fair chop.
