DAM AT FALLS MILLS LAKE

Located in Falls Mills, VA, the stone dam at Falls Mills Lake was built originally to supply water to the N&W Railroad. It now furnishes the community with a place to relax and fish thanks to the volunteer efforts of the Falls Mills Fishing Club.

I liked this scene because of the water turning from dark brown to a mixed color to crystal clear during flood runoff. Of course, at the bottom of the dam, it turns back to a murky mud color.
