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 - # 119 !
LAKE MEAD !
In the border of the STATES of NEVADA and ARIZONA, HOOVER DAM dams the COLORADO RIVER and originates LAEE MEAD! It's all pretty close to LAS VEGAS and the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM, so we flew over that wonder for some minutes on our way to the beginning of our adventure in the GRAND CANYON!
Some others have been already posted by me on TE!
Take a look at some of them by clicking HERE , HERE and HERE , or visit my LAS VEGAS or GRAND CANYON galleries HERE and HERE !
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!
"IN BRAZIL, these days, we're having CARNIVAL (CARNAVAL)! Today, I only have good memories of those parties, when I was a child and a teenager and I really enjoyed the "dancing balls" we had in a club, in VILA DOS OPERADORES, a small village we used to live in! For children, in the afternoon, for adults, at night! I miss all the music (some of them we don't have anymore during these days - yes, they're old fashioned!) I miss the bands, confetti & "serpentina", whistles & colorful plastic hammers, masks & fantasies, dancing around that large room I used to love so much, without thinking about anything, just about how much I loved all that, even the hot weather! I miss the soft drinks I used to have to get some refreshment and the swimming-pool we all went to after all that dancing! Or even taking a bike ride, so happily, before going back home! It's been a while I don't do any of those things anymore! Not even Carnaval in Rio I watch on TV! I usually go to my parents's place or stay home, just resting! This year, I'm even studying! In between, other memories about what I mostly enjoy doing come up to my mind: TRAVELING! And I dream, I dream A LOT about my next adventures! Yes, many brazilians still enjoy CARNAVAL, but many don't and find other things to do during these days!"

I've been to Lake Mead a number of times, but never ever have I seen it from this point of view.
this is fantastic.
its so interesting to see how the land cuts into the water like jagged edges, and the colors are attractive too.
very fine post for TE, unique scene.

Neyvan, I've been there and I saw the exact same view..I find your take extraordinary and very impressive in color!!
amaryllis (36787) 2014-03-02 22:46
En effet le résultat est superbe en plongée et ton cadrage excellent.
On peut remarquer toutes ces découpes et c'est impressionnant

Nice contours. Colors are shades are excellent.

Good Morning Ney,
You have shown us what appears to be a 3D map, this morning! It is remarkable! Despite your height, I can still see a reflection of one of the hills, in the water.
It makes us feel like spacemen!
Have a great day,
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-03-03 2:42
brilliant capture from above!The perspective makes,the place I think takes on a new dimension.For me it looks almost unreal or like something from other planet(it´s because raw,barren landscape around the lake)
Have a nice day

a wonderful capture from the air, a very accurate description with superbly defined, vivid colours. A fascinating arrangement and presentation in a vertical frame. The textures and the 3D effect are marvelous. I love the light and the reflection by the tall rock, it's amazing how smooth and deep the water is. This looks like a google map but it certainly feels more vivid. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

superbe ce pov sur cette côte découpée avec toutes ces avancées sur la mer, bon effet aussi avec ces roches de teintes différentes, bien pris et présenté.
Sergiom (77401) 2014-03-03 5:38
J'aime beaucoup cette photo prise de très très haut. Le regard suit très bien le contour de la rive. L'ensemble est d'une grande netteté et j'aime beaucoup la lumière du jour.
Corry (4508) 2014-03-03 6:04
Superbe photo aérienne de cet endroit où on peut voir les avancées rocheuses dans l'eau. Les différentes couleurs de la roche donnent un très bel effet. Netteté excellente. Belle réussite. Salutations.

An exquisite view from above, Neyvan.
Outlines of the land on the artificial-lake is most impressive in clarity. nature made sculptured scenery, and you were on the right position to take a great phgoto.

Superb aerial shot. Very well spotted and taken.It is unusual that it is possible to take a photo with such an excellent sharpness and detail. Also a very nice compostion. TFS and have a fine week!
PaulVDV (28251) 2014-03-03 10:41
What a fantastic lunar landscape!
Wonderful in contrast with the deep blue water of the lake.
I love that rugged coastline. That huge rock in the middle demands all the attention.
Best regards, Paul
boa (7375) 2014-03-03 12:29
aerial shots through a window is no easy task but this one is good. I like the contrast between water and land, interesting different color tones of the rocks. It is also a reflection in the water from the rock:) Well done!
Have a nice evening/
Periko (4948) 2014-03-04 8:16
Splendid landscape captured from a privileged point of view. Water and desert make a great couple. Good work.
COSTANTINO (64208) 2014-03-04 13:36
difficult and interesting capture from
the air you must publish them
in a map necessary for everybody
who loves the geography
great work from you

A crystal clear bird's eye view image Neyvan. I like the simple abstract shapes of the land against the blue waters of Lake Mead and the relief of the land is exceptionally well defined for an aerial shot. Nicely done. Warm regards Rosemary
ChrisJ (112331) 2014-03-08 11:44
A superb aerial view of Lake Mead with impressive warm cold color contrasts between the blue water and yellow red rock. Good sharpness and the jagged cliff in the bg makes a fine focal point. Have a nice weekend!
jmdias (63426) 2014-03-09 15:46
uma linda foto, gostei muito do contraste entre e zona de água e a parte do deserto e suas formas. quem sabe conheço esse pedaço ainda este ano.
Gigidusud (20825) 2014-03-09 16:18
Amazing shot! Inpressive view and POV. Well done!
Angshu (56750) 2014-03-12 0:34
This lake I understand is fast drying up!
The deep blue of the water contrasts well with the brown of the ground...a well pictured natural landscape, which has been well presented
