Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting LAS VEGAS, LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM, RED ROCK CANYON and the VALLEY OF FIRE (NEVADA), the GRAND CANYON - WEST AND SOUTH RIMS (ARIZONA), BRYCE CANYON, RED CANYON and ZION CANYON (UTAH), the DEATH VALLEY (CALIFORNIA) and finally CHICAGO (ILLINOIS) - From APRIL 05th to 24th, 2012 - # 129 !
HIGHWAY 93 !
LAKE MEAD! A LAKE IN THE MIDDLE OF PURE DESERTLAND!
Time to go back to LAS VEGAS! On our flight by plane back to Boulder City, one more flying over LAKE MEAD, but this time with another kind of light!
As a highlight here, HIGHWAY 93, the one I took some days later, to visit LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM and then head to the GRAND CANYON'S SOUTH RIM, some 400 km away from that point! I drove along HIGHWAY 93 down south to KINGMAN, where the road would go together with HIGHWAY 40, for a couple of kilometers, to the east. After that the two road would split and I'd take HIGHWAY 40 to the east until WILLIANS, where I'd finally take HIGHWAY 64, northbound to the magnificent GRAND CANYON'S SOUTH RIM!
Now we can post larger images, so take a look at this comparison: West & Chicago n] 16 - BREATHTAKING !
As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!

When I see similar landscape I think the sunny beaches with the palms are more attractive for me ;) Anyway, outstanding photo of the Nevada desert, perfect quality.
Well done, Neyvan! Thanks!

Hello Neyvan. Your photographic passion is landscape. The view from above the hilly countryside and the Lake Mead is terrific. The photo reminds me of my stay in Nevada a few decades ago.

beautiful landscape from the air with well composed elements and good framing. Very pretty colors and light and lovely sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

An image showing the rugged terrain down below full of detail in great colours and light with the distant horizon increases the depth and perspective, Well done shot, TFS

An amazing aerial view with the low light source revealing all the textural patterns in the terrain. Good sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts between the yellow red earthe and the blue sky and water. The diagonal road provides lead in lines. Tfs!

a luz baixa faz a textura criada pela erosão ainda mais evidente. muito bacanas estes detalhes como a estrada, o lago e as montanhas. belo trabalho.
