Lovely photos and thanks for sharing some of the history of the river and reservoir

Hi Sally it's my again -I saw too late that my artblog info was listed, but am actually writing from Artistique (Emille). Have a wonderful week!

Your captures are beautiful! The reflection in the last one is so dreamy!Am surprised everything looks so green (or did you take this at another time?)

Margot

Hi Sallie, I just read all of your October posts. thoroughly enjoyed myself - it's like reading and looking at a great book. Thank you.

This post made me wonder about your next move. I'm guessing you are thinking about your other home in Florida. You do live in two interesting areas, not to mention all the other places in-between. Great life.

The shot of Kirk Pond is so beautiful. Interesting how with modern technology, we are able to control (to some extent) the powerful force of water. Fascinating stuff!

Linda

Well done! I enjoyed this post!

There seems to be a little too much water about in the US this week! Hope you and your are not caught up in the storm.

Lovely shots - sounds as if the control is good for people and nature.

Carletta

It looks and sounds like it works pretty well for residents and wildlife. If I were a fish I think I'd be traumatized having to go through the gates. :)
Lovely shot of the lake!

It's windy here but as of 11:00pm they think we will stay just warm enough to escape any snow. Don't know if I'm sad or glad about that.

Ebie

Oh, no, I thought you were in the East. Looking at the gushing of the water, made my legs shake!

Al

Pretty shots and an informative post. I'd always be nervous living below a major dam.

TexWisGirl

impressive flood control measures.

Sandy Carlson (USA)

Water. Amazing and powerful.

Carol

Magnificent photography ~ and great post ~ hope all will be safe during the storm ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

LaVoice

Sounds like there will be a lot of plug pulling with these storms coming in. Very nice post and entertaining.

Gaelyn

You were definitely there at the right time.

Eileen

Hi Sallie, I am sure everyone was happy that the dam was built and is controlling any flooding. Great post on the river and dam. Have a wonderful week ahead!

Colin Huggins

Very sensible indeed, to have flooding controls on rivers.
The Hunter Valley in NSW now has flood controls - it was in the 1950's an area that totally went under water - devastating for both the rural and urban areas.
Great informative post. Well done.
Cheers

I very well love the last photo, the green color is so fresh. Maybe that's why I love the color green. Have a wonderful Monday Sallie. Oh, btw did you get my email? in reply to the one you sent me?

Martha

They pulled the plug. The folks down river will be glad if there is heavy rain over the winter.

Thank goodness for the dams that protect homes and wildlife!

Joy

A VERY NICE PLACE!

Boom & Gary

Great tour of the dam. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Sylvia Kirkwood

Wonderful post, Sallie, and terrific, dramatic captures indeed! Hope you have a great week and no run-ins with Hurricane Sandy!!

Mick

That would be very interesting to see the water draining from the lake and its good that the big floods no longer happen.

Carver

Fascinating post and beautifully dramatic shots.
