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 - # 120 !
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!"

Une autre très belle vue de cette côte très déchiquetée, bel effet avec ces strates de différentes roches et teintes, excellent pov depuis les airs, les teintes sont lumineuses et bien capturées.

Superb bird view of Lake Mead. Excellent viewpoint, superb light & clarity. Excellent exposing (f/13 and fast shutter speed) created brilliant sharpness. I've the lake Mead bird view but from 12km altitude, taken from commercial JET airplane.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice week.

Interesting aerial view of Lake Mead, looking very desolate, yet appealing irregular shoreline. A very massive lake created by Hoover Dam.
The large butte in your scene may be "Temple Bar" a popular place for boaters and rafters to access the Lake?
Thanks for sharing,

I have very similar pictures as this one, but not clear as this one. I remember I was on the airplane close to Las Vagas. But that was a hazy day, so my pictures were not great.
Your picture is much better. Lake Mead from air is breathtaking. Thanks for sharing.

Stunning panoramic, which shows a large area from the air of this magnificent lake, wonderful to see that so jagged coastline, also will it rising in height as the different layers, also with differences in color, the deep blue water is a contrast marvelous.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
All the best.
