The down side of the dam at Thruscross Reservoir . I think had I waited a few more minutes to take this photo the face of the would have started to be covered in shadow.
I have it in my mind that I have seen a similar picture some time in the past – with a telegraph pole in front of a much larger dam.
The last for the time being.
(Until next time, or another dam.)
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.
Looking down from above.
Continuation downstream of the Washburn.
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.
