Detail, Dam Wall, Lake Parramatta,
NSW, Australia 2008


Lake Paramatta is an artifical lake formed by a 15m high dam that was originally built in 1855-56 to provide fresh drinking water to the growing centre of Parramatta in western Sydney. It is now a recreational reserve.

I thought the contrast between the water weeping through the dam wall on the left hand side and the angled shadow on the right made an interesting composition.
