More glory!

The word 'glory' conjures up many different ideas, and yesterday's post was one that I found spectacular.  For me, none of the uses of glory involves deities though.

This is a photo of something called a 'glory hole' in the middle of a reservoir, and I find it somewhat un-nerving.

Apparently this is the second largest hole in a lake, at 22m diameter.  It is the top of a pipe which controls the maximum level of the reservoir behind the Monticello Dam, California.  Effectively it is the top of the overflow pipe like the one on your kitchen sink.
