The Bowels of Hoover Dam

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
The Bowels of Hoover Dam
The Bowels of Hoover Dam
1/15s @ f/6.3, ISO 6400, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 @ 24mm. (MT-Technology)
Several hundred steps lead down into the bowels of Hoover Dam and this is only halfway...turn around and you will see the same thing going in the other direction. This staircase goes up and down the entire height of the dam, and prior to OSHA's interference in the '60s, was apparently a single wooden staircase with no landings -- making a fall extremely dangerous.

Terrific capture, but WAY more steps than I'd ever attempt (down is easy, but it would take me two years to get back up)!

This outstanding capture makes me regret not having gone for that tour while we were there years ago. Wonderful, Rona!

The light is fantastic, Rona! I wish I had taken advantge of touring the dam while we were in Vegas years ago. We've never returned to that area again. A wonderful capture, my friend!

This is an AWESOME image, Rona! Your exposure here is fabulous...and the composition is excellent too. Sometimes these types of shots can do a number on one's neck...lol. Of course, you handled it perfectly. Huge congratulations on an OUTSTANDING finalist!! Deb
