In Turkish we call this kind of ovev as "tandır".Greetins, Nurettin.
Lets hope so Stuart. I took this in early 1973. They abseil down it now. Incredible the size of this thing. I'd hate to think about the weight of the water its holding back. I don't know if you noticed or not the sign in top middle that says Top of Dam.
Ian Stehbens Hi again Ian and thanks for the info and link Yes we too have wild deer roaming all over the place and occasionally get to see them in the oddest of places in built up areas too ~~~ Thanks for your visit and best wishes to you
Ian Stehbens :~) you might be barking up the wrong tree here though Ian ~ Glad you have enjoyed the collection ~ All the best ~ nick
I agree, Berend. The landscape is so so green. The small village in the background has only 8 houses, and while I was here, my home was the green one partly obscured by the 2 storied pink home. Betty, and her parents, cared for me while I was in Dingo Dingo, so I am pleased to have this photo of her.
She attends the local high school, walking 2.8 km along this road each way. I walked with her to school on my last morning there, then continued for another 4 hours till I arrived back at the river where the bridge had been destroyed by floods earlier in the year. From there I rode on a truck across Malaita Island arriving in Auki late in the afternoon. Long walks in equatorial climate (30C and 75% humidity) are rewarded with a deep sleep the following night!
Thank you, Berend. This is so typical of the grazing landscapes in the Mary Valley.

Excellente photo Inessa
Thanks for your very real interest in my images. Thanks too for the Fav encouragement. The colour of the lake is due to the heavy load of glacial rock flour in this melt-water lake.
Glacial landscapes are so different from those of other systems.

Hi Victor, thank you for your visit and compliment. Greetings Berend
