A Late Saturday Afternoon Trip To Baihe Reservoir (白河水庫)

Just before 5.30pm at the mid-point of Baihe reservoir's southern shoreline; the reed beds to the right are there because that is where the reservoir's second feeder stream enters, and along with it, plenty of clay sediments over the years. After the recent rains early this summer, the reservoir is now full. I have previously walked across here to the trees in the distance on a reservoir bed now some two meters or so underwater.
The "gate" on the other side of those reeds; from here the water passes west to east and to the back of the reservoir.
Local fisherman passes through the gate on a motorized pipe raft, leaving a wake behind.
I wasn't the only one taking in the scenery.
View to the right (southward) after passing through the gate.
Panorama shot after having passed through the gate.
Another panorama shot further east up into the back end of the reservoir; at this point the light was beginning to fail and it was time to go back.
