A lensless pinhole camera shot of Lake Ontelaunee taken from the bridge over the dam looking downstream over the Maiden Creek. Lake Ontelaunee is a 1,082 acre reservoir that, for much of its history, provided most of the drinking water for the city of Reading Pennsylvania. It's a favorite fishing spot year round and is surrounded by state game lands and farms. The lake is formed behind the Ontelaunee Dam and was created in 1926.
