A dam on a wine farm (not sure of the name) off the Stellenrust Road, Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa.

RAW conversion in Lightroom. Noise reduction, cloned out a piece of pipe (?), set the black point and the white point with levels, brightened the rocks a bit with a masked curves layer, increased contrast and applied "Adamus" sharpening.
