Big Water

Two sluice gates have been opened on the Vaal Dam, unleashing an extra 200 cubic meters of water per second.

wow! that is some amazing force be unleashed there. I might be a tad nervous standing down stream of that wave smile
Rory Ingle: Charles yes it was a bit daunting, especially considering I shouldn't have really been there.
Quite an amazing capture for me Rory, as the last time I visited the Vaal Dam in 1982 it was totally dry after a long two years drought period!
Thank for sharing.
Rory Ingle: Yes it is like this in Africa, you either get too little or too much, but perhaps more is better, though this rain is driving me nuts.
I see what you mean Rory, mine is a "pretty" picture, Yours is very dramatic, works perfectly in B/W,I bet it was very noisy. Great shot.
Rory Ingle: Thanks Linda my next pic will be a little less dramatic and in colour just to get perspective.
Dramatic, impresive, well taken...to be archived for the annals of history!
Rory Ingle: Thanks Bernard, I gues your right especially since it happens only every 7 years or so.
