The Yellow River’s Sanmenxia Dam officially opened its gates on July 4 around 10:00 p.m. to release its sediment load, giving way to a fluid rush of glistening water captured beautifully in photographs.
Sediment-speckled water gushing from the reservoir rushed down the river to move silt downstream. Reports described the scene as looking like a fast moving ‘dragon fly’ made of water.
The dam soon became a tourist attraction as people swarmed around the river to watch the water do water what water does.
