Rising full moon taken over Lake Mead near Overton, Nevada, about 60 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

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 112 miles (180 km) long when the lake is full, has 550 miles (890 km) of shoreline, is around 500 feet at greatest depth, has 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. (From Wikipedia)

Another glories of ur gallery what a moment... so beautiful well done ELEU TABARES

Dramatic scene, Eleu.
Format very adequate to catch the powerful bloody moon and its reflection.
A great entry to the week theme.
Have a good WE.

Hi Eleu,
Cool shot of the moon and it's reflection.
Well captured with excellent detail on the mountains as well.
Very good!

Hello Eleu,
fort belle ambiance pour ce crépuscule du Nevada.
De nombreuses espèces aquatiques doivent peupler les profondeurs de ce lac.
J'aimerais y faire un bivouac et contempler la lune danser le long des crêtes ...

Beautiful night photo with the rising moon, nice delicate reflection in the water, well done

Hi,this one again has great atmosphere and the landscape is barren and mysterious.Excellent colors too.Friendly regards,Otto.

Hi Eleu,

The reflections on the water of the lake are assets to the composition. The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the mountains and of the moon. It is fitting well withe the Friday's theme. Have a nice day.

Hello Eleu

Beautiful shot, very well managed to bring out the details of the moon & forground equally. Nice work.


Hello Eleu, the moon is rising and we can still identify the features of the landscape.
I like the subtle colours of this scene at dusk.
The 'portrait' presentation is perfect.
Tfs, regards Jean.
