HOOVER DAM BYPASS !
(MIKE O'CALLAGHAN & PATT TILLMAN MEMORIAL BRIDGE - US ROUTE 93)
In addition to what the city of LAS VEGAS itself has to offer, its surroundings has plenty of attractions too! One of them is the HOOVER DAM, in the border of the States of NEVADA and ARIZONA (in the BLACK CANYON / COLORADO RIVER).
In this aerial picture, the bridge that also links the two States and that was built a few meters south of the DAM.
I took it while flying in a small airplane, going from BOULDER CITY (NEVADA) to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM.

La lumière est un peu dure, mais le point de vue est impressionnant. Très bon cadrage.

Excellent aerial photo. Very good composition, DOF and all details. If you put it in better vertical position it will be a perfect photo.

I remember traversing the old road and also this engineering marvel being built. This is a superb view of it and the rich textures and colours are so obvious in this fine image. Captured and presented perfectly.
Have an enjoyable weekend - warm wishes - Brian.

Very well done Neyvan! I don't know if you had some control on the course of your flight, but angle of view just seems ideal. Pleasantly descriptive and well composed. I drove on that bridge many years ago; had more or less forgotten what the place looks like. Interesting.

A good areial photo of the drige in its this brown and bare landscape. I hope that the erosion rate isn't very great because the drige seems to be supported on a flimsy base close to the edge.

Une vue impressionnante du paysage avec le pont, les routes, bravo pour le POV, belle lumière et couleurs, magnifique

This is a remarkably excellent shot considering that it has been taken from an aeroplane and, presumably, shot through a perspex window.
The composition is excellent with the roadway and bridge forming a lovely strong diagonal across the frame. The colours give a good impression of the arid nature of the territory though I suspect that the colours are not perhaps quite as vibrant as they would have been had you not been shooting through glass or perspex.
Perfect exposure and wonderful details and sharpness.

Superbe résultat depuis ce pov aérien, bien présenté avec le pont qui forme une diagonale qui traverse l'image.

Spectacular panoramic view. I like the impressive structures and the amazing natural soil. Well taken, have a great week.

Fine aerial shot of the bridge which spans the canyon. We've seen the bridge from other POVs, but its the first time I am seeing an aerial POV. The diagonal works well & the light created good colour contrasts. Well done!

I can't keep up !
I have tried to get back to this for a while, and see I have missed 6 new posts of yours- where does the time go ?!
This is a great image, of something I have seen in books or TV. You were lucky to see it so close up, and from the air, a very privileged view. The perspex gives it a novel light, but the detail is brilliant.
I bet the whole thing as you flew across was very very impressive. A bucket list place for me, for sure.
( I have just spotted the cars ( toy cars, one with airstream caravan ) on the bridge !! Its HUGE ! )
