Hoover Dam Hairpin
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Hoover Dam Hairpin
Hoover Dam Hairpin
The 180-degree bend in the approach road to crossing Hoover Dam. Shot from the new bypass bridge that soars just to the south.
The dam is just barely visible at the top edge of the photo, towards the left, where the "overlook" juts out.
I did not manipulate the roadway in post-processing; the widening/bulging effect is due to my location, and the actual road design.
11/10 Finalist - T&P

Very dramatric image. I saw the new bridge in October before it opened, and would have loved to be up there for photography.

Thanks, Richard. Last time I was in Vegas, the arch of the bridge was not yet complete. Quite a neat experience to walk across that soaring bridge now!

You probably entered this in T&P but it sure packs a wallop as an EoD entry, too! Great perspective that really gives us a sense of place and terrific lines and shapes that make for aesthetic pleasure.
