view upstream

This shot is from the other side of the bridge, facing away from the lake and into undeveloped land. The land on this side of the road is rather swampy and there are a lot of large but dead trees. As seen yesterday, there are pleanty of healthy woods closer to the lake. I'm not sure why. The dam has been in place since 1974, so perhaps the land has gradually gotten soggier, but 40 plus years...

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

It does look rather swampy and desolate. But I like the way you have composed your image.
