Why I did not choose this one?

In 2013, while I was visiting an exhibition from Cantabella artist, the artist was there, and she wanted to take us a picture. Then, I shooted my camera at the same time.
This is my third picture (I'm sorry) for the September Theme Day. ;)

Dam Down

Between 1943 and 1963 was carried out the construction of the dam of the Cenajo.
The 6 of June of 1963 was inaugurated by the dictator Francisco Franco. For this inauguration, and to give it more visibility, 100 cubic hectometres were derived from the Fuensanta reservoir, upstream, so that it would show full.
The number of prisoners who worked on the dam throughout the work is unknown, but in 1953 there were 123, representing 17% of all prisoners redeeming punishment that year. The total number of workers involved was 7700, according to the Segura Hydrographic Confederation. Of all the deaths that occurred during the work, in 1954 a national newspaper announced the death of three workers, who fell from 76 meters in height, and in whose honor a cross was erected.
In 1963, it was the highest dam in Spain.
It is located in the municipallity of Moratalla, Region of Murcia.

This summer amonng to be a very dry summer, it is also a dramatic summer with losts of fires in the Iberian Peninsula: Spain and Portugal. Most fires have been brought about.

Drought at Region of Murcia

Other times I have commented that in the Region of Murcia it usually rains little. But this year is being really hard.
In the image, Cenajo swamp, the most important swamp of the Segura river. It is located at the head of the river. Currently, today, it is at 17% of its capacity (a year ago, by the same date, it was at 34%). I took the photo last August 1st 2017. Terrible.

This drought is hard in the bordering provinces as well.
