The Res


I can list on one hand the amount of lakes and ponds that I have seen that were not man made, it is not many. Most lakes and such in Mississippi are the result of the damming of a river and the creation of a reservoir, such as the Ross Barnett Reservoir as seen here from the Natchez Trace. I feel that they man made reservoirs provide a double edges sword, many are not used effectively for flood prevention, as they were intended and therefore only serve the purpose of emergency water supply. However they are beautiful and provide a wonderful scene for many photos, and just for fun. Nothing like soaking up the sun and enjoying a beautiful day!

Some of the man made lakes, are really beautiful.. and have made new ecosystems.. full with wildlife at places where there waqs nothing but a stream before.
Great post.

But it does look so peaceful - a good place for a walk in the peace and quiet of nature!!

Such a beautiful scene. Your reservoirs are certainly prettier than the concrete ones I grew up with. Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh how peaceful..... I'm sure there's a double edged sword involved, but it's a beautiful place to spend the day just wandering about, eh?

You want to see some beautiful natural lakes (created by Paul Bunyon and glaciers) head to Minnesota.
