New pictures of the man made lake

A series of photographs showing the beauty of the reservoir that lies between Cheddar and Axbridge in Somerset – and how the water levels have fallen during the summer. They are all taken with a Samsung mobile phone in the early morning whilst out for my jog – around 6.30am to 7.30am. The lens is the main reason why the reservoir looks so large – almost like an inland sea – but in reality the circular lake is man made, built in the 1930s with a high bank to hold the water. First light is around 5.30am but with each morning the sunrise comes slightly later so not too many more day light runs first thing. More on my Facebook and Twitter pages and at
