Maybe the OP just has a camera with a very good telephoto lens. Good pics.

How’d you get to this view? I went up there the other day and this was all authorized personal only signs, I’m guessing you either ignored this or have a mate working there? 🙂

It certainly does! It was fascinating to imagine how the new storage would look in the landscape.

Great! Thanks. Absolutely dwarfs the existing dam.

If you look carefully you can see the current dam directly below the tip of the long jib. The small rectangular building at the base of the near crane’s tower is the beginning of the intake tower. The darker grey rock area framed by two crane towers is the dam wall abutment – I imagine that the top of that grey area will mark the top of the dam wall – compare with the current dam.
