Howden Dam, Peak District, England.
















Howden Dam, Peak District, near Sheffield, England.

Tranquil now.

During the dark days of World War 2, Lancaster bombers of 617 Squadron trained here nightly in secret in preparation for their famous Dambuster raid against the Nazi held dams on the Ruhr.

Canon 40D + 24-105 lens. Rainy day.
