Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States in maximum water capacity. It is located on the Colorado River about 24 mi (39 km) from the Strip southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. Formed by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead is 112 miles (180 km) long when the lake is full, has 550 miles (890 km) of shoreline, is around 1,221.4 feet (372.3 meters) at greatest depth, has 247 square miles (640 km2) of surface, and when filled to capacity, 28 million acre-feet (35 km3) of water. However, the lake has not reached this capacity since 1983 due to increasing droughts.(From Wikipedia)

One can clearly see the effects of the drought, the white band showing the low water level is quite impressive. The warm and golden light illuminating the upper half of the mountains renders thid fine composition very attractive.
Have a great day

Interesting not only for the dark shadow contrast with the sunny red sandstone, but also the white "bath tub" ring.
Dam(n)advocates maintain that if dams were removed their ugly bath tub ring would remain for ever. More reasonable is probably about 10 years depending upon the rock structure.

Un paysage dans l'ombre et la lumière de fin de journée qui réchauffe une partie des rochers et ce mélange dans les nuages, belle réalisation

Wow, the water level has gone down quite a bit since I last saw it. They may need to put in water restrictions in Las Vegas before long. Good sharpness and shadow detail with a superb warm cold color contrast between the red rock and blue sky. Tfs!

nice the view of this section of the lake with the falling late afternoon light to make the scene even more effective.Informative your note about the lake.

I wish to see bit more hi-lights on the shadowed area to the left if possible, knowing very well of the strong side lighting condition you faced there its exposure is pretty well managed. Nicely composed, with lots of good detail on the rock, water areas and the glorious skyscape with the refined shadow certainly adds to the image. Above all I love the golden tones and the blue sky splits so superbly. Wonderful photograph captured, Congrats, TFS
