Focal Length:5.1mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

The reservoir of the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River, China. I have mixed feelings about the environmental impact of the project, but if it provides some clean power to a country too reliant on coal and other pollutant power sources, then that’s some small good result. Whether that is enough to justify the forced relocation of 1.3 million people and the destruction of many historic places, I don’t know. The price of progress is a tricky thing to judge.
