A walk across the top of Overholser Dam one will find straight rows of gears that were once hand operated.

Opening and shutting the flood gates were their function. Although I did not count them, there were many to be opened when the flood waters arrived from the rain swollen North Canadian River.

I sure hope the workers had more than one wheel because that was a lot of 'DAM' gates to open!

  1. Nice set of photos and explanation to go with!

    I am impressed with the simplicity of this setup... No wires, no motors, no sensors just one fellow with really sore arms at the end of the day!

  2. I like these photos! I especially like the middle one, very nice shot!

    You're getting really good at those frames too!

  3. Now this is what I called the LINE of Focus. You have multible objects that lead to the background. I like the 2nd one the most, very well balance picture. Great Job!
