So big Tomas that it is difficult to see that it is a dam dam

Well, you can see it on the map, that's for sure. ;) The complete structure definitely didn't fit in 1 single photograph so I decided to zoom in a bit further (also to catch that memorial you can see in the background) Maybe I have an overview shot somewhere on my hard disk, I'll try to find something tomorrow.

Hey Nick, I couldn't find an overview shot of the High Dam you see above. What I do have is a shot of the Low Dam which is located a couple of miles to the north of the High Dam. That photo isn't particularly good-looking but does show something of the size of the low dam (which is quite a lot smaller than the High Dam). Here it is.

Thanks ****Tomas** ~ I have looked at the low dam picture and looked more carefully at the mapped location of each and agree that the project is massive. Thanks for digging out all of this extra info for me :) I can't work out where the lock systems are to allow the passage of river traffic or perhaps they are far away in another channel perhaps. All the best nick
