Photographer's Note

Vidraru Dam is a dam in Romania. It was built in 1965 on the Argeş River.
It is an arch dam built on a foundation of rock, and it was built to produce hydroelectricity. Its construction has also created a reservoir, Lake Vidraru.
An arch dam is a concrete or masonry dam which is curved upstream in plan so as to transmit the major part of the water load to the abutments and to keep the dam in compression. An arch dam is most likely used in a narrow site with steep walls of sound rock.
