This trail that you can see is leading to Hoover Dam on Colorado River.
From point I took this photo... 3.5 miles to the dam.
In Background it is visible very small part of Mead Lake.

Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States in maximum water capacity. It is located on the Colorado River about 24 mi (39 km) from the Strip southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. Formed by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead is impressive: 112 miles (180 km) long when the lake is full, 550 miles (890 km) of shoreline, around 500 feet at greatest depth, 247 square miles (640 km2) of surface, and when filled to capacity, 28 million acre-feet of water. However, the lake has not reached this capacity in more than a decade, due to increasing droughts.

Hello Tomasz,
Fantastic DOF and beautiful colours and composition. A very informative complementary note too. Well done.

Very nice composition and framing here, Tomasz.

Nice scenery, and the dramatic sky certainly adds to the harsh and barren landscape.
Excellent perspective with that winding road cutting across and along the shot into the distance.

Nice work,


Plenty of drama captured in this image Tomasz. I like the position of the road, leading in from behind the large rock on the left side, taking the eye to the islands in the distant lake. The sky has lots of atmosphere and you have captured wonderful tones and textures in the rocky landscape.

Hi Tom,
A great shot with the beautiful colours. I am a bit put off by the reddish tint. Nice composition.
