Ladybower Reservoir 2/7

This is taken from behind me when I took yesterdays posting and is the River Derwent flowing away from the Ladybower dam towards the Howden reservoir a little further down the valley. The water level was quite low at the time so I suspect that might be why the water is somewhat dark as there is not a steady flow going through to keep it clear.

It is a lovely spot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Quite nice to walk along, although it would usually be full of water.
Joli paysage avec ce petit cours d'eau.
Brian Walbey: At times of heavy rain this would be full of water being the outlet from the dam.
This is so pretty!
Brian Walbey: Quite nice to walk along, although it would usually be full of water.
A beautiful peaceful place Brian.

You can see from the banks that there is room for more water
Brian Walbey: Quite nice to walk along, although it would usually be full of water.
Could be iron in the water Brian
Brian Walbey: Could well be Bill.
Lovely water Brian, I'd imagine there is iron in it too.
Brian Walbey: I reckon there perhaps is Chad.
Water levels change throughout the year. It seems a lovely spot for a stroll.

I like the reflections in the water. I remember the year when the River Derwent flooded some towns in the Lake District.
Brian Walbey: Indeed but it wouldn't have been this Derwent, there are four rivers of that name in England.

I think the colouring of the water is pretty much like that regardless of the flow due to the peaty nature of the attachment area. Were you tempted to walk across on the stepping stones? It;s the sort of day thing I do and then wonder why I get a boatful of water at times wink
Brian Walbey: I think you are right Alan. The stepping stones didn't tempt us at all, we are going to Dovedale in September and will take the alternative route to avoid the famous stepping stones there as well.
Still a nice shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Alan reckons it could be from peat and I think he might be right.
