[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Tominé Reservoir is a reservoir in northern Cundinamarca, Colombia about 60 kilometers north of Bogotá. It is 18 kilometers long and 4 wide, and reaching at its maximum depth at 38 meters. Its objectives are to control water levels for hydroelectric plants in the region and supply drinking water to Bogotá. It is adjacent to the municipalities of Sesquilé and Guatavita.

The reservoir was completed in 1967. The town of Guatavita was intentionally flooded for the construction and functioning of the reservoir. Guatavita was rebuilt on higher grounds. Today, Tominé hosts water sports and other water-related events.

Hallo Edgar
I would love to hang this one on my wall - it surely has magnetism to it. The colours are brilliant and the atmosphere unique. This overall blue colour adds to the mood of the scenery.
I wonder what the reason could be that out of 182 views before mine, you did not receive even one critique. Maybe the lack of partaking from your side?
Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
