Well done, Jessica!

Jessica, I really like the colours and textures of this and especially enjoy the little trees growing at the back wall.. but I don't understand, what is it? I have never seen a structure quite like this :) Can you enlighten me?

Hi Vicki, it's an old power dam, no longer in use. I took the picture from a boat below the dam: here's a boring view that shows the whole thing. I also have a picture of a hole in the top of the dam.

Thanks for the links Jessica, it all makes sense now :) I kind of figured dam, but it is so much different than the more modern ones.. It reminded me more of an aquaduct, except the water was in the wrong place!
