Lake Windermere is on the Mudgee Road, near Apple Tree Flat. I mention Apple Tree Flat for two reasons;
If you want to Google Lake Windamere, Apple Tree Flat is a good reference point and It’s a really Cool name.
Construction of the Dam started in 1974 and was completed in 1984.
It’s an Embankment type of Dam and it’s volume is 1740m3 or 61,000 cubic feet.
Total capacity is 368,120 mega litres or 13,000 x 10^6 cubic feet and it’s catchment area is 1070Km2 or 410 square metres.
I have been past this Dam many times and due to it’s size have had many photo opportunities ,including drought times when the water levels exposed the submerged trees.
This image is not the Dam proper, but an overflow that cuts under the road.
If you look closely you can see a submerged telegraph pole.
There were small ripples on the original photo. I only carry screw on ND filters when travelling, as this road is busy and this was right on a bend in the road,I smoothed the water in post,
I will post an image of the dam ,during the drought another time.
