  1. Stunning shots Babsje and that is a huge difference indeed! Great take on the challenge and thanks for taking part hon. Much appreciated. 😀 *big hugs*

    • Hi Sonel – thanks for thr re-blog and your kind words. This week has been my first attempt at your B&W Photo Challenge, and its been a lot of fun. Plus, the submissions by the other posters are wildly creative, and I think everyone has enjoyed this topic.

      When I took that second photo, we were in drought, but still I was shocked that the water flow was reduced to that small trickle.

      • You are very welcome Babsje and I am very glad you enjoyed hon. 😀

        I do hope it will look better when you go and take another shot of it again hon. Shame, even the Herons missed all the water. 🙂

        • Thanks, the herons were doing ok even in the drought. The dam is on a river and downstream and upstream they had enough water for fishing. The impact was striking, though, since there wasn’t enough water volume for it to cascade so beautifully over the dam. Have a great day, I’m off now for the lake and herons. No sightings yesterday, the first time all season.
