I would never be able to get here normally - I'm nearly in the middle of the reservoir! I first 'discovered' this in the long hot summer of 1976 and I haven't seen it since. I was a bit disappointed that the water wasn't lower as there is a bit of a slipway to the right of it and it slopes down another 5 feet or so.
I wanted to show it in relation to the village beyond but I wasn't happy with the composition so I wandered around for a bit to see if I could find anything else to add to the picture and I found the rusty hoop which I brought back and stuck in the ground, then most of the rust fell off but I still liked it. I may go back and see if the water get's any lower if the 'dry' spell continues.
