That dam noise.. by maggiemae

That dam noise..

We are staying near this Dam - Roxburgh and can hear the sound of the water coming out! The photo was quite difficult to take as the mist from the water covered everything - us and the camera. The Dam was built in 1954 and now remains a favourite tourist destination because of the bike trails alongside the water!
Thankful for:
This Lodge has Russian managers or owners and they are superb - she is a super chef and wine connoisseur
and he can change lightbulbs and prune all the roses and be so good at being quietly supportive.
Wow you can feel the power of the water

You really caught the energy in the water. Very nice.
December 29th, 2019  
It may have been difficult to capture it but worth it don’t you think? It’s a gorgeous capture love power and fury of the water and all that mist.

@gilbertwood I think that too - such a waste really..... all on downwards to spread into the ocean!

@vignouse Turbulent is the word, do you think, Richard?
December 29th, 2019  
@maggiemae And then some 🤭
December 29th, 2019  
@maggiemae Oh that's a bit sad - with so much drought around! It would be like watching champagne being poured down the drain!!!!!

They sound a very competent couple....hard workers too I expect. This water is quite terrifying specially to listen to. I like the small people on the left, gives a sense of scale.

@happypat John very gallantly says - if you slip and fall down there, I will rescue you!!

@louannwarren It is nice, Lou Ann - not luxurious - the buildings are oldish but the garden is a riot of roses and the food - a culinary art!
December 29th, 2019  
you have taken us right into the drama here.
December 29th, 2019  
@helenhall I'm surprised there is no strong fencing here - to stop people taking selfies!

@shutterbug49 Of course the energy of these waters has gone out through the turbines to create the hydro power. But there is still tons of energy left that is not harnessed!
December 29th, 2019  
Amazing shot!
December 29th, 2019  
Great shot.
December 29th, 2019  
Wow....This is a super capture...so much movement...Fav

Love it - fav

Wow -- with all the spray you've captured, you've really conveyed the power of water!

@taffy This river, called the Clutha is in flood, Taffy. Just today, a guy being chased by the police jumped into it! Allegedly
But he was caught!
December 30th, 2019  
Nice shot of the action!
December 30th, 2019  
@maggiemae Good grief! I would think jumping in more dangerous than taking chances with being caught!
December 30th, 2019  
@taffy I can't believe this either - but apparently it happened - a witness saw it. This would have been further up the river but still wild and turbulent!
December 30th, 2019  
That Dam is the same age as me! Haha! I don't mind noise as long as it is the sound of nature...not construction, cars, leaf blower, etc. :)
December 30th, 2019  
@gardenfolk Quite right, I do agree! Birds chirping madly, wind in the eaves, rain on the roof - exactly.!
December 30th, 2019  
@maggiemae Exactly! :)
December 30th, 2019  
Wow, the force of the water is amazing. John's a good man for vowing to go in after you. Glad you didn't have to test him!
December 30th, 2019  
Wonderful shot
