This is a new place for me on this trip, so not a revisit like my previous images. This place is called the Linq. It is an entertainment center built around the Ferris wheel, which rises “550 feet in the sky”. (168 m). I should have crossed the street and taken more images. Maybe next time.
A dramatic view of the drop off in water depth at Lake Mead from the Turbine section of Hoover Dam. The man made Lake created by the Dam has served as a vital fresh water supply to not only the nearby Las Vegas Valley, but also to San Bernardino, Northern Arizona and Phoenix area as well. Some 20 million or so people use this run off of the Colorado River for everyday living. Sadly, water levels cannot keep up with the overgrowth of the areas it supplies and most likely will one day run dry, unless a solution is in the works, we may be looking at the potential to experience the largest ghost towns the western hemisphere has ever seen.
This is another revisit of previous places I’ve worked with before, but this time using the new wide lens. It is also from my top place to shoot in Vegas, City Center. This image shows the monorail that runs along The Strip in Vegas.
