A lot of people will associate Caeser's Palace with the Hangover movies, but even without such association, this casino is probably one of the more famous one on the Las Vegas Strip. 2010
Las Vegas at Night
Just a one second exposure to get this shot (seemed like more, but it was a long time ago). This is Las Vegas Boulevard at night, and that is a scaled version of the Eiffel Tower. 2010
Eiffel Tower in the Desert
Early evening shot looking down Las Vegas Boulevard, complete with a desert version of the Eiffel Tower. Nv. 2010
Caesar's Palace and Trump Hotel
The view from near the top of the Bally's Hotel, looking north out over Las Vegas at sunset, 2010
Bellagio Water Fountain
One of the more famous sights on the Las Vegas strip; the choreographed water fountain infront of the Bellagio. I can best remember the water dancing to 'Time to Say Goodbye'. Taken in 2010.
Elvis, a Yellow Cab, Bally's, the Eiffel Tower and the Las Vegas Strip. Las Vegas pretty much summed up here in one image. 2010
Lake Meade Aerial
This is the vast expanse of water that feeds the Hoover Dam reservoir. However, Lake Meade has suffered from a drop in elevation in recent years. 2010.
Low water in Lake Meade
An image, which perhaps better represent the drop in reservoir water elevations behind the Hoover Dam. The uniform elevation of the white band doesn't seem like a natural geological feature. 2010
Colorado River at the Hoover Dam
I wide angle view looking downstream from the crest of the Hoover Dam. The bridge in the shot was brand new and not quite open, but I'm not sure I'd enjoy driving over this structure. Looks very high. 2010
Hoover Dam Aerial
I was too big to sit at the window seat on the helicopter, to my complete annoyance, but rules are rules. Result was limited opps to get this Hoover Dam shot, high above the Colorado River, Nv, 2010.
Hoover Dam Drop
I do "suffer" from a fear of heights, so getting this shot was ultra brave (at least from my perspective). Hoover Dam downstream face, with some interesting lines on the concrete face. 2010
Hoover Dam and Lake Meade
The access to the Nevada side water intake tower at the Hoover Dam. This was taken near sunset back in 2010, when the reservoir levels had been much reduced. Wonder how further in the intervening years.
As we got closer to the Hoover Dam, the landscape became ever more alien and the idea that the massive Colorado River gorge was somewhere up ahead actually became a little unsettling. 2010
Hoover Dam Intakes
These massive intake towers were very much exposed by the low water in the Lake Meade reservoir. Still, though, a lot of hydrostatic head available at this massive Hoover Dam. Taken from the Arizona side. 2010
Hoover Dam Upstream
A 2010 shot of the intake structures at the Hoover Dam, showing the considerable drop in the reservoir water level. This is taken from the Arizona side of the dam.
