Niagara Dam – Goldfields – Western Australia – GQDT 003 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The Niagara Dam sans water in July 2019. The dam was built in 1897 to provide water for the then booming mining town of Kookynie (1,500 people) and the mining area at Niagara.

To get the cement to build the dam, 400 camels where used to cart if from Coolgardie, some 250 kilometres away.

As it turns out, the Niagara Dam, which is 228 metres long, 18 metres high and seven metres thick and a holding capacity of 141,000 cubic metres was never used as intended. Before its completion a good quality underground water supply was found in Kookynie itself.

We visited as part of our July 2019 father/son drive of the 1,000 km Golden Quest Discovery Trail in the goldfields of Western Australia.

Oops, my camera reset the ISO back to default when I had to hard-reset it.

As a result, some of the shots are pitch dark. Luckily nobody will notice when I push this shot +6 EV.

Yeah no. You can tell but there are some funky effects yo. Like overpushed and crossprocessed film

Except Electric Vehicles - La Bastide-Puylaurent - - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D5-19 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

It was interesting to see, even in a little village such as La Bastide-Puylaurent a charging station for electric vehicles.

Day 5 of 12 - Le Cheylard l’Evèque to La Bastide-Puylaurent: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Europeans seem to take sustainability seriously. I was watching a report yesterday that listed all of the top bicycle-friendly cities in the world as being in Europe. I live in a small but very busy community, and I wouldn't dare go road biking around here. We don't have auto charging stations, either.

A plaque my wife commissioned as a gift for me to celebrate my retirement. Our daughter and her husband have a sign printing business, and our daughter milled this on her CNC machine and hand painted the graphics and letters. I love it, because it captures me perfectly. If you don't recognize the shape, it's the outline of West Virginia, the small US state where we live.
