Yahoola Creek Dam



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

When Betsy and I were in Dahlonega, Georgia, in March I caught sight of this dam as we crossed a bridge over Yahoola Creek. The water flowing over the top of the dam looked so pretty that I just had to find a place to pull off so I could get a picture.

Well, I clicked on this one, George, because there was just SOMETHING about it. And when it was larger, I saw what that was. The water coming down looks like brush strokes in symetrical sections.

All that power passing through that space, and yet the image looks soft to the eyes. Nice shot, George.
