The Derwent Dam in November 08

The Derwent Dam overflowing in late November 08.

It was a great morning for light and as an added unexpected bonus was the fact that as well as the blue skies the dam was overflowing, with excess water lapping over the edge and cascading over.

A few hours earlier the excess water was only just lapping over now and again - the crest of the dam was quite dark, a dark charcoal colour possibly causes by algae or the stone just being saturated with water.
