Beyond the Dam

By woolybill1
Caban Coch reservoir in the Elan Valley, mid-Wales, viewed from the footpath upstream from Caban Coch dam. Thick morning mist was beginning to clear.

Thanks for all the votes, comments and awards yesterday, they are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

A very classical mono - great!
The added grain (?) contributes to the "timeliness"!
Congrats and greetings!

This brings back happy memories of playing with Ilford Delta.

Caban Coch cleverly captured, considering crappy climatic conditions could compromise comfort, conceivably curtailing crucial camera carrying capability. Conversely, carefully considered contingencies can clearly confect continued creativity!

Excellent image, Bill. Best viewed at a distance. (on my screen 2-3 paces).

Wonderful and uniquely atmospheric. Also reminds me of spending hours, and hours, in the darkroom ( to produce just one print ).
