photoblog image Whirlpool

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?

What I think is gosh, that's so damn cool. I'm looking right into the eye of a some kind of wild animal, or, shoot even higher, into the eye of the evil himself.
Deji Olatunde: Thanks VZ.

I thought it was a picture of a storm, but I guess it is the same concept. Very nice capture!

What a great image ... it looks like a metal casting !!! I would love to see this cast in a bronze.

Deji Olatunde: Thanks a lot John.
