Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra

This week’s Photo Challenge is “Extra“.

The challenger wants us to show pictures which includes a little something in them.

Here are three photos of the same theme that has got a little something slipped into the  pictures.

We were walking on the dam of the Plover Cove reservoir which was formed by building a dam in the sea and pumped the water dry on one side.

So, on one side, you have the side and on the other side, you have the fresh water reservoir.CIMG1924

The reservoir, when constructed in the 60s, was the world’s first fresh water lake  reclaimed from an arm of the ocean.CIMG1957

The reservoir  is the largest reservoir in Hong Kong in terms of area, and the second-largest in terms of volume (holding  230 million m3). Its main dam was one of the largest in the world at the time of its construction, cutting off Plover Cove  from the sea. One main dam and three service dams were built to shut the cove off from the sea. The cove was then drained and was converted into a fresh water lake.CIMG1923

The construction of the reservoir was an engineering feat. The dam of the Reservoir is 28m tall and approximately 2 km long. Our plan was to walk from one end of the dam to another and then retrace our footsteps on our way back.

When photographing the sceneries, dragon flies got into the pictures.

They are small, but they flew close to the lens, they were magnified and looks big relative to the other features in the picture..

  1. Oh my goodness. What beautiful photographs. I am so honored you liked my blog. Being just a point and click type of photographer I don’t come close to your professional compositions.
