Photographer's Note

this is spelga reservoir, in the mourne mountains of county down, northern ireland, close to the source of the river bann. this picture was taken just as the sun had set over pigeon rock mountain (behind me).

the reservoir was formed by the building of the spelga dam, and sits at over 1,200 ft above sea level. the reservoir and dam were built as part of a project that had origins in the idea of supplying water to belfast, in 1894.

the spelga reservoir itself was finally developed between 1953 and 1957 and supplies water to the banbridge and portadown areas of counties down and armagh.
