That's My World Tuesday: My City's water supply



The main water supply for my City (Raleigh, NC) is the Falls Lake Reservoir which covers roughly 12,500 acres of water and is surrounded by 25,500 acres of public land. The shot in this post was taken at Blue Jay County Park one of the many recreational areas around the lake. To visit participants from other parts of the world please drop by the home of That's My World Tuesday.

What a beautiful, serene view, Carver!! I just wonder, where were you standing as you took this picture?

Carver said...

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting.

To answer the questions, fishing is allowed at parts of the lake. I shot the picture on a bank pretty far away from what I was focusing on. Ironically I zoomed in trying to get the flock of birds but they were so far away and my zoom wasn't powerful enough so they look like white flecks.

Beauty and function - nice combination.

Such a huge water body! You are lucky. Bangalore is already facing the pinch of shortage of water.
