This is the result of much hard work, at a cost of 77,000, to dredge our local lake.
It has been well worth it though, as can be seen from the clear water in V2 & V3.
The whole project is reported, pictorially and literally, on my website if your interests inspire you to find out about all of the project.
I won't provide the website name, because it is a commercial site (and I'm led to believe, as such, contravenes ePz rules), but if you look at my portfolio and add after it, you'll arrive safely, I'm sure Wink

Interesting stuff Jack.
I've been following it on the website, the name of which we mustn't mention here but which actually may be posted on your pf. to include: .*o.*k.
Apparently posting it there's not such a huge transgression as posting it here.
Take care.


I'll PM.

Mm. I've just looked and it does include all of the naughty bits anyway Grin
I trust that you've enjoyed the reportage.
I've done quite well in having been approached to sell several of the images to various publications. Wink

I have enjoyed it Jack.
I wish someone would approach me with a view to buying a few images!
When it comes to reportage, I've got the timeline of the new and as far as I'm aware, unwanted, guided busway that's going to pass though the town.

Have you told (the appropriate) people that you have this material available?
They won't come to you, if you don't tell them that you're the man to see, if they want it.
Have you also saved your images as decent sized jpg's before optimizing them for your website?
I saved everything at 10"; 12"; 15" & 18", before cropping them to 1000px x 72 dpi

The lake is back the way it was when I moved into the area, 25 years ago Mick.
The clean up is long overdue. But you're absolutely right. It has been done very professionally.

PS: Under the Photos tab you'll find Environmental Works NN3 Wink

Quote:Have you told (the appropriate) people that you have this material available?

I hadn't even thought about it to tell you the truth.
As for saving my images, they're all kinds of sizes! They've been taken with various cameras and phones!
They're all at least 1000px @72 or greater but the size and resolution's academic anyway, depending upon their purpose.
I might phone the council. I'm not sure who else would be interested.
When the bridgelayers put in the new bridge over the A505, they brought with them, their own in-house photographer. Evidently, he travels around the country, photographing these guys at work. We had quite a long chat, Not long enough, sadly, that he'd let me through the fence though. I did ask.
