090929 That's Where It Is

Turning the camera around by 90 degrees from yesterday's picture, this is what you would see. The road is the M62 and this is the Trans-Pennine stretch just north of Huddersfield. The reservoir is Scammonden Reservoir and the motorway actually runs along the top of the dam wall. It is one of the busiest stretches of motorway in the UK and most people who have traveled in the North will have passed along it and glanced down at the reservoir as they passed by.

That's an interesting composition and would make a nice painting but people dint seem to ever paint motorways.

That is a cleaver why to get water and a road at the same time. I would never have guessed that was a man made lake. We have one near here where they flooded out farms and gravel roads. It is the Des Moines river area and they let it dump back into a river on the other side. They had to move a cemetery to do it and down in the bottom somewhere is this neat old metal bridge. The area of your photo is a beautiful location.
