…I just love my job. I love that I get to see and do the things I do – research! Headed up to Liberty Dam to look for some shaft openings, to do a possible tunnel inspection sometime in the future. While waiting for my tour guides, I roamed around a bit and took some photographs of the property.
This looks like the old hut the engineers used when building the Ashburton plant.
Blue highlights on this contraption.
Ha! A charm of finches. (Why aren’t seagulls really a flock? They are a colony. And what about turkeys? A rafter??)
Getting a little bored here.
Yes! First stop, the intake structure!
Liberty Road bridge. I asked about kayaking here – need a permit and a 12′ kayak. Mine is 10′.
I like the glass block.
The valves. Looking for an opening to enter the conduit to Baltimore, for the inspection.
Done at the intake, headed to the dam.
Damn! I thought there was going to be an escalator or an elevator to get to the bottom!
Heading down. Does anyone else have a problem photographing with LED lights?
Looking up from the bottom. No matter if I used a flash or not, the LEDs were too bright.
Another view. Different light.
This is dead center at the bottom. It was a relief opening when they built the dam.
As can be seen here during construction – the relief opening.
