Big Reservoirs

All across America, we find large bodies of water impounded and created by dams.  We portray these in a slightly different way, leaving the outer rim of our wooden lake map a natural color (either in oak or birch depending on what you choose). This allows the small creeks and the deep, narrow ravines and draws to show in better contrast and detail. Some of these reservoirs are over a hundred miles long, but they still turn out beautifully as a Lake of Wood. There are more pictures coming this winter, so come back soon. Thanks!
