“Sunset on the Reservoir”

Caught a beautiful sunset a few weeks back up at the Barkhamsted Reservoir. This time of year the sun starts setting behind the dam so you can get some pretty good landscape shots if you time it right.  Love how the sun illuminated the window in this shot, as the sun sets the light will eventually go on itself, setting up some evening photographs as well.  Didn’t stick around for that this time around, but have a feeling I’ll be back up there again soon :)

A different angle on the awesome and structure that is part of the Saville Dam on a Barkhamsted Resevoir. This photo is even trippier when you look at it upside down (very stranger things-esque) #savilledam #barkhamsted #strangerthingsedits #reflections

💦Fall in love with the nature🏔️
.
Spoiled by breathtaking panoramic view of Ukrainian nature, I used to prefer vising city spots while traveling. Everything changed, when my husband planned to spend the whole day in Big Sur, California 🌿🌳
.
Have you ever seen a movie, where actors drive down the narrow (1 lane each way) mountain road, and see the ocean from their window?🌏
This is it! .
It's called a "Scenic Ride". 🏔️ Every time I see a sign like this, my heart starts beating faster. 💗
.
Scenic rides have a lot of spots to park and enjoy the view or take pictures.💛💙
.
The Saville Dam 🌸 is a 135 foot tall dam at the eastern part of the Farmington River that creates the Barkhamstead Reservoir. Although the Saville Dam is beautiful year round, it is exceptionally breathtaking during the fall foliage. The dam is located at 275 Saville Dam Road in Barkhamstead, CT which is also known as Rt. 318. As you drive along Saville Dam Road, you cannot miss the dam; the road is surrounded by water on both sides.
.
110 out of 100! This is the East Coast spot worth visiting! 🥰
.
It is also a very popular engagement spot (no wonder!) I was seriously waiting for a ring again 🙈🙊🤣

Saville Dam | Barkhamsted, Connecticut | c. 1948
•
•

Saville Dam or Barkhampstead Dam is an earthen embankment dam with masonry work on the eastern branch of the Farmington River in southwestern Barkhamsted, Connecticut which creates the Barkhamsted Reservoir - the primary water source for Hartford, Connecticut
•
•

In 1927, the Metropolitan District Commission began to purchase land in the present-day footprint of the dam and reservoir and construction  commenced in 1936
•
•

Before the Metropolitan District Commission named the Saville Dam in 1940 in honor of its chief engineer, Caleb Mills Saville, it was referred to as the Bill's Brook Dam after the brook that ran near the site at the time
•
•

The foundations for "Bill's Brook Dam" were completed in August 1934, and subsequently, the East Branch was diverted into the concrete conduit at the bottom of the Bill's Brook Dam site. The dam was completed in May 1940, at a total cost for dam and reservoir of $10M
•
•

Although the Saville Dam was completed in 1940, it was not until 1948 that the Barkhamsted Reservoir finally filled to capacity
•
•

The reservoir flooded many buildings and farms of Barkhamsted, including the village of Barkhamsted Hollow. The village of Barkhamsted Center, partially flooded, lies just to the west of the reservoir. Its remaining buildings are part of the Barkhamsted Center Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places

One of the prettiest dams you ever did see is right here in Litchfield Count - Saville Dam is in Barkhamsted in fact. This vast reservoir and beautiful structure invite visitors to walk by - enjoying the beauty of it all. Pack a lunch and make a day of it. Have you been? ⁠

My husband took a good photo for once. 😁 Lucky to live by such a pretty place.  Couldn't help but pull over! Made it on the list of "enchanting man made wonders in CT", too! Link: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/connecticut/man-made-wonders-ct/

“Crack in the Dam”

Shot from last week after a quick ride to the Saville Dam to catch the last light as it faded over the hills surrounding the reservoir. Was glad to see a few clouds lingering around behind the dam, as I knew at least they would catch some color from the setting sun even though it was in the other direction.  Spring is here and I and so looking forward to the weather turning and longer days! But would not be surprised if we don’t see a little more snow ❄️ before the month is over 😬
