L'étendue du lac donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du barrage et des montagnes. J'apprécie les différentes teintes de couleurs de l'eau. Bonne soirée.

This is a set of three fine photos from this newly discovered (by tourists) country. The blue waters of the reservoir and the green mountains provide a refreshing scene.

Bonjour, cher Luciano,
La vue plongeante sur ce barrage est vraiment impressionnante.
Le système de retenue d'eau doit être à l'épreuve de la pression exercée ! Ce qui implique des calculs savants.
L'environnement est très beau.
P.S. : Merci pour les photos présentées en atelier c'est parlant !

This is an interesting post. The view as such is quite attractive and not the most common kind of TE photo, but the note is more important than with the average picture on the site. The photo gains a lot from the information about the realities of politics and economy. Strictly photographically it is well composed and with many fine tones of green.

Hello Luciano, it is an interesting picture, nice to see these masses of water held back by the tiny dam. You're not too lucky to have ongoing constuction with the crane in the picture :-). But we can get a sense of nature's forces and human efforts to fight them. Well seen and done. Greetings

No doubt a point of contention between the two countries but there does not seem much Georgia can do about it. The point of view is well chosen to show us the massive size of the dam and set it in context. I like the beautifully rendered turquoise tones of the reservoir.

The POV you found offered a great view of the large dam and the peaceful lake right behind it. It's an impressive piece of engineering and you captured it very well here. Great work!

Good frame and composition.
Nice colours and light.

Normally construction equipment and yellow cranes detract from an image but here you have made the crane work for you, by placing it against the blue cyan bg of the reservoir. Good sharpness and high pov. Tfs!

Ciao Luciano, favolosa la grande diga, belli anche i due Ws, splendida luce, ottima nitidezza e magnifici colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

a fascinating set of photographs from a lesser known location,the politics of the area are doubtless very complex, but your shots portray perfectly the magnificence of the area and the expertise needed to construct the dam.
Best wishes Les.

A very good capture to show us the structure of the dam as a whole, beautiful landscape and the dam and the power plant are here a little strange.
The photo itself is simply excellent

Ângulo interessante dessa barragem, a parte curva ficou bem interessante. A água tem cores e brilho realmente lindos. As montanhas fazem um bom fundo. A grua amarela do primeiro plano é um bom detalhe. Boa nitidez.

Beautiful colors of the water, that really stand out surrounded by the dark tones of green of the vegetation! That's a great engineering work shown in this photo and the workshops, with very good light and sharpness! Beautiful job!

Your photograph is excellent and it is augmented by an informative note. The colors of the water highlight the dark hills of the backdrop.
Incidentally, in the "optical illusion" embodied in my last post, the staircase is laid out horizontally, with each floor actually a room. The woman in the photo (my wife) simply walked into room 3-4.

si potrebbe definire la diga della discordia...
Purtroppo le occasioni di litigio si trovano sempre, figuriamoci se ci sono degli interessi di mezzo.
Hai comunque fatto un ottimo lavoro, impreziosendo la galleria TE.

Nice the panoramic view of the dam with the verdant backdrop to enhance even more the beauty of the place.The excellent light and colour management enhance the clarity and the details of the scene.

I had to go near this dam on the way to Mestia, but I didn't realized it is so high - the fifth highest in the world. And it doesn't seem very large. The largest in the world is Three Gorges in China.
As I was going by marszrutka, I had no possibility to see it closely. Interesting note. Excellent composition and sharpness. Beautiful colour of the water.
Kind regrads from Warsaw MAlgo

interesting images of this hydroelectric power plant, this type of places are not usually seen in TE, I like the natural environment where the construction is located, well seen,
- ikeharel (84074)

The giant dam looks to be still under construction, as I see cranes and a yellow lift on the far side.
But, it created a lake within the green hills and has some environmental advantages.
A fine take with good allocation over the pic. space.

Interesting note and impressive dam from Georga. The azure water and the steeep hills, covered in green trees make for an attracive combination.
have a great time

Ciao Caro Luciano,
This is a magnificent dam, built in a politically fragile area!
You have used the dam wall as a fine separation line; a third composed of man-made features, two thirds looking like a natural environment. It contrasts the areas very effectively!
Were you allowed to tour the installation or os it very secretive?
- ktanska (30633)

Excellent viewpoint for showing this huge structure, although the bottom of the valley is out of view. Beautiful forested mountain slopes. I like how the sun shines on the trees on the left.

Interesting view of hydroelectric power plant. I like wonderful natural colors, nice composition and good sharpness.Thank you for detailed and informative note.
Good shot, fine presentation

very impressive composition here!I like this point of view slightly from above which well captures the beauty of the place. We can feel the power of the dam seeing a huge lake supported by it.
I like the green color tones all over the picture. The yellow crane adds a nice touch here.
PS I have just booked a trip to Italy. Your photos will be my guide :)

i really like the WS #1, thats my favorite. we get to see so much of the damn itself, its got a strong industrial feel to it.
too bad there has to be such a political battle over it, but thats the world of today right?
interesting to hear its only on TE once or twice before, so this is a treat :) excellent trio of photos, all a little different. cheers

impressive the barrier of the dam, very high, and we can imagine how deep was the natural gorge. my state is full of dams and produce lots of electricity, including the largest electric plant of the world. at this moment we are trying to preserve our fourth largest river, saving it of dams, but there are more projects to do that.
- PaulVDV (35632)
- [2017-10-10 11:48]
Honestly you surprise me with the facts in your note. I had not heard of this dam.
From an excellent point of view you present us the dam with its beautiful curve together with the lake and the surrounding amazing forested mountain slopes.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Luciano, a fascinating shot of the dam and its surrounding scenery.
Your high point of view allows us to see much of the dam wall.
Lovely natural colours.

Un impressionnant barrage bien pris depuis ce point de vue élevé, jolie luminosité qui donne des couleurs très agréables.C'est parfaitement présenté.
