I’m pulling out the old stuff on this extremely windy Tuesday morning, it’s gusting to near fifty miles per hour and my house is making the occasional creaking sound. Partly cloudy and 88 degrees are forecast for today, still a good day but too windy for a bike ride. I haven’t been to Hoover Dam since before the pandemic and should head down there soon, it’s such a beautiful area for photography. Happy Tuesday!
Good morning folks, here are some oldies pulled from my archives. I haven’t been to the dam since before the virus came around so maybe it’s time for a ride down there again. Sunshine and 86 degrees are forecast for the valley today, Saturday will see 90 degrees, our scorching summer heat is officially on its way back!
This is a large plaque located at Hoover Dam that honors those who died during the construction of this beautiful dam so that people can live and thrive here. And so that people like me can run a photoblog here and share the city and the beautiful Mojave Desert with you.
Digging deep into the old files vault, I grabbed these not-so-sharp photos from the Nikon D3300 to post this afternoon. There are more photos than just these from that day. I purchased the many Navajo Pottery pieces you may have seen on the blog in Boulder City. I should take a ride back down there to see if that store is still there and take a walk on the pedestrian bridge if it’s open. Last I checked, you can visit Hoover Dam with restrictions in place of course. I’d like to try the Nikon Z6 there too. Are we fed up yet with the crap this damn virus has caused?
These photos were taken from the Mike O’Calllagahn – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. I used the older Nikon D3300 body and the zoom lens. The damn is open again for viewing, but with limited access. Photos never do the dam any justice as you really can’t grasp the sheer size of Hoover Dam without actually being there!
