Okay then...Wally took a picture of his cousin, Waldo, where?

No hints til after three guesses. SHOULD be easy.

It is Clive's plantation in Nova Scotia. Picture taken during a wonderful summer day. It was taken to make all of us who leave in the northen parts of the northern hemisphere of how cold it is now.

I have no idea (strike 1)

I thought this was where's wally not 'what on earth is this' it might be a hydro electric plant but none of the canadian ones look like that (in fact it doesn't really loook like canada). So if it isn't a hyrdro plant then is it a sluce gate for a lake that controls the amount of water going in to a river?

(Does that count as three so that we can have a clue now?)

Well done Fud.

"So if it isn't a hyrdro plant then is it a sluce gate for a lake that controls the amount of water going in to a river? "

There is a small hydro power plant in this structure (which you can't see), but what you see is indeed an overflow of a man-made reservoir. This is a reservoir dam. And it is indeed in Canada .. it is not all forest. ;)

Enough hints for now.

No, but you are on the right track. Water from the Glenmore reservoir goes into the __ River and downstream meets the river fed by the dam shown ... and they become the ___ River. ;) So you are in the neighborhood. Well done.

Ok so it's the Elbow river that then joins the Bow river and the dams on the Bow river prior to Elbow River joining it are Ghost Dam, Horseshoe Dam and Bearspaw Dam but trying to find pictures of anything like yours is a nightmare!.

No, not the Elbow....the river I am referring to joins the Bow River about 300 km SE and downstream from Calgary. But to make it clear the river associated with this dam is almost due south of Calgary. Clear? ;)

Clive was it named after you - Old Man River Dam?  :)

Man, talk about a lucky guess. When you threw the Canada clue, I just went to a wiki search, and believe it or not, there is already some one listing all the man made reservoirs in Canada.

Funny enough, Clive's name was not associated with it.

Well done Fud. Over to you. It is the Oldman River Dam. It is about 100 km SW of our home. Our summer trailer place is about 15 km west of the dam on the edge of the reservoir. The dam and reservoir control water flow and retain water for the summer season when precip is low. The overflow is rarely used. We had enough rain (and mountain snow melt) in late May 2008 that the reservoir filled right up and so they had to spill. Normal stream flow is maintained via a down-draw outlet near the base of the dam.   

Oh BTW .. the name of my consulting company is Oldman Communications, Ltd. ;)

The Oldman River supplies us with water. We brush and flush with it.
