MyWorld Tuesday: Sauerland

Photobucket

Today I've dug up some photos from the archives, I took them last year in December when I was visiting my parents. They live in a town called Luedenscheid in the Sauerland, near the Rhine-Ruhr area. Sauerland means Southern Land, although the name translates literally to Sour Land. It has many lakes and water reservoirs, much of the drinking water for the Rhine-Ruhe area comes form those. The pictures were taken at the Versetalsperre (Talsperre means water reservoir).

Here the dam is visible, seen from across the reservoir:
