This is the infamous Digley reservoir, or it was for me, as ten minutes after this shot my camera, 10-20mm lens and tripod were all at the bottom of the water you see in the image. I was setting up for another shot and bent down to get a filter and a gust of wind blew it off the ledge right into the water and to the bottom.

Amazingly the memory card when dried out still worked and contained this only shot of that day.

So until the insurance is sorted out I am grounded

That's really bad luck!
Nearly happened to me once.

Nice shot and good conversion though!
