Over the holiday season I have neglected working on images taken from my trip to Nevada, Arizona and Utah back in October 2011. In fact my portfolio titled “Vegas versus the Canyon” covered so far only days 1 and 2 of what I consider to be one of the most memorable trips of my life. During the next few weeks I will be sharing with you other images taken during the remainder of my trip. Hope you like them.
This is a view of Lake Mead, which is considered to be one of the largest water reservoirs in the United States (if not THE largest). It is located on the Colorado River about half an hour drive southeast of Las Vegas, and runs through the states of Nevada and Arizona. It is formed by water impounded by the Hoover Dam, and covers a distance of about 180 Kms behind the dam.
You can see behind the lake several lines of Jagged mountain ranges which surround the lake with a very beautiful backdrop. I was told that the sunsets around this area are magnificent; unfortunetaly time is always our enemy, and I never got to experience it here. Oh well… may be next time.
Hope you like this image.
