Behind Bars

By adagio
Many thanks for the votes & comments on my previous upload, with special thanks going to Rich (woodini254), Phil (PhilT2), David (Imageryonly), Graham (Ericsamson) and Pete (Peco) for the User Awards (PMs sent) all are so very much appreciated.

Behind Bars, a view through the wrought iron gate to one of the turrets along the wall of Derwent Dam. Texturised and stylised to create a more arty effect. During the Second World War, the reservoir was used by pilots of the 617 Squadron for practising the low-level flights needed for Operation Chastise (commonly known as the "Dam Busters" raids) due to its similarity to the German dams.

I'd never heard of Operation Chastise - have heard of the Dam Dusters!
An extra layer of interest on a war theme.
