16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Maroondah Reservoir

Aerial shot of Maroondah Dam.I really liked the contrast between the lush foliage and the mirror like surface of the water. The Maroondah Dam is a rock foundation concrete gravity dam with an uncontrolled rock chute spillway across the Watts River, located in the Central region of Victoria. Its principal purpose is to supply potable water for greater Melbourne.
