This image, from Flickr user celula, shows what appears to be a newly- constructed dam in the northwestern portion of Mendoza Province, Argentina, in the area called Potrerillos. The photograph clearly shows a large lake present, while the Google Earth image, while low-resolution, appears to show the lake as empty, indicating that either the dam is newly-constructed, or that the water level varies considerably.
