Day 5, after leaving Las Vegas our first stop was the Hoover Dam and like most visitors, we did the walk out on the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to view and photograph the dam.

 

The bridge was the first concrete-steel composite arch bridge built in the United States, and incorporates the widest concrete arch in the Western Hemisphere. At 890 feet (270 m) above the Colorado River, it is the second highest bridge in the United States after the Royal Gorge Bridge near Cañon City, Colorado, and is the world's highest concrete arch bridge.

An alternate view from above and behind the dam wall from the Hoover Dam Lookout, with the Kingman Wash Access Road in the foreground. Part of the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, from where the previous photo was taken, can be seen in the upper left of this photo.

Downstream- the Colorado River meanders away.

This is the Hoover Dam, a bit of a vertical panorama as it involved 3 images. I took a similar photo that I displayed before -- can't decide which one I like better.

Nine image stitch of Hoover Dam from the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. It's one helluva view from the walkway!

Meet Hoover one of the youngest member of the family. He is named Hoover because he will spend all day vacuuming up any bird seed that is left, very thorough, even if it takes all day, shot in North Carolina.

50007 Hercules arrives at Ely from Washwood Heath to pick up a Colas Plasser & Theurer Tamping Machine that had caught fire.I know a Hoover has been here before but even so about the rarest visitor to East Anglia for some time.The only problem is what can top this!

I took this picture back in May when I visited Hoover Dam and the water levels were surprisingly low ... even tho I can only assume they must be even lower now !

 

I researched this and seems like Lake Mead is currently at the LOWEST level ever (excluding the time before the dam was built and was filling up, obviously) and is as of June at 1075.08 feet (was at 1076.57 during May when this picture was taken) which is a problem for the people who rely on it for their water supply and the electricity that the dam generates.

 

Engineers are working on installing new turbines that could work even if the water falls below 950 feet !

Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression.

He hoovers up all the nuts at Morton lochs !

This barn owl, hunted the verge with percsion, using the wind to hang and focus on every movement that would take place under him.

Took a day trip up to Hoover Dam. The lighting was super harsh so I decided to take an HDR photo in an attempt to balance out the photo. After combining the 3 images I brought out some of the shadows using the dodge tool. I focused on the shadows on the water and the Hoover Dam to bring out the color and highlight the Hoover Dam.

This is Hoover Dam as seen from the bridge opened in 2010 to divert traffic from crossing the dam.

 

The tiny window through which Wilbur shot an image can barely be seen.

 

The dam is truly an amazing accomplishment. It was built during the Great Depression and employed thousands of workers. For more information see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoover_Damen.wikipedia.org/...

Taken through the side window of the helicopter. Don't worry, I don't have many old scanned photo's.;-)

Scanned image of positive film taken 35 years ago.

Only here was much water in the dry district.

The dam is located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, and on the Nevada-Arizona border. When I made a trip from the bay area to Ajo in Arizona, I visited the dam because it was one of the most famous dams in the world, and because I just wanted to see a lot of water.

The Hoover Dam is located on the Colorado River between the states of Arizona and Nevada.
