Holding Dam

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 19 February 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Posted in response to Pradeep's request. This is the holding dam at El Chorro on top of the mountain. Just a bit too big for me to get it all in. I am standing on more or less the highest part turned round from the two views posted before the Malaga pics. The lake in the distance on the left is one of the three dammed at the gorge and is presumably the source of the water pumped up here.

I like being able to see this huge holding dam. You've done a good job of getting enough in the shot to produce a very good composition. I like having the lake below in the picture too.

Well taken, Grouser. This is a fantastic piece of construction and it's great to see it virtually full to capacity. You've done well to get so much of it into the photo.
