Captured this whirlpool at the Akusombo dam in Ghana. This dam is the major source of the country's electricity.
The whirlpool is as result of the low level of the water entering into the turbines. The pressure flowing into the water turns the turbine which in turn produces electricity.
Prior to the drying up of the dam, Ghana hardly ever expercienced power outage and supplied electricity to about six other countries in Africa.
For me the beauty of the picture is the reflection of the sun on the water surface. What do you think?
