Dam of sighs

...Cordeaux Dam.

Taken with Olympus AF-1 on expired Kodak Gold 800. I found the AF-1 at Dapto markets and paid the princely sum of $3 for it. The battery cost more than twice as much. The Olympus AF-1 (Infinity in the US) from 1986 was the world's first weatherproof fully automatic 35mm compact camera, earning it the nickname "Nurepika" (wet flash) in Japan. The camera determines whether the flash needs to be used in the light conditions. a real point and shoot.
FAV! Love the following lines, also the colour. So nice!

Like this one as well. I suppose it's not actually called a road. Is it the spillway?

Hi Peter, your photos are really great. Shellharbour and the environs look beautiful, what inspiration you must have surrounded by that scenery! I apologise for the very late challenge but I hope there is still time for you. Here goes: Please could you take a photo that exudes light and warmth and makes me feel the sun on my face. It is grey and icy and gloomy here in London and am in need of reminding that spring is around the corner. Thank you!
