We talk a lot about conserving water, but it's not just so we have enough to drink: the world's oceans, streams, ponds, and even puddles are some of Mother Nature's most amazing work. The Silent Valley Reservoir in Northern Ireland collects H20 from the Moune Mountains and distributes it as the main source of drinking water for the bulk of County Down and Belfast. Its tranquility and abundant wildlife also make it a popular spot for day trips.
