Hoover Dam

This was taken from the Hoover Dam itself. To the left is Arizona and to the right is Nevada. On our trip back from Arizona we walked there on the bridge as well. Nice view of the dam and the lake behind it.

Hoover Damn

I took this photo from the HW93 bridge over the Colorado river. Sometime in the future I’ll share photo or two from the opposite direction, with the bridge as it is seen from the Hoover Damn. I’m not sure in what state I was as I took this panorama, could be Nevada or it could be Arizona, or who knows, maybe by some wild chance my right foot was in Arizona and left in Nevada.

This is a panorama. Yes, even though it doesn’t look very wide, it is actually three photos stitched together to make this view. To your left edge are the rails of the bridge and to the right edge are the rails as well, well, they are just a few inches away and not in the shot. Most people take panoramas with holding camera in normal horizontal condition, but the trick to get wide angle panoramas and not to bend it all like crazy is to turn your camera vertically, like shooting in portrait mode and get your panorama shots that way. You’ll have to take a few more photos to cover the desired area, but then you’ll have more room to cut out if necessary from the top or bottom of your final shot. BTW, the original high resolution image of this photo in my photo gallery  is a whooping 8756 by 9409 pixels, 49MB file, if you click on the image you’ll be able to download XL size that I share out (for this photo it is 1117 by 1200 pixels, still pretty big). Did you know that there are a lot of people down there on the damn?
