Lake Mead

Lake Mead

One of our favorite ATV riding places is just across the Utah/Nevada border past Bunkerville. Here is a shot of Lake Mead, and at this northern viewpoint, is accessible by 40 miles of dirt roads and ATV trails. A few days ago, the closely controlled and measured lake shrunk to its lowest point since Hoover Dam was completed in 1936.

There looks like the top of a sunken luxury ship! Amazing photo shot. I wonder if you did some PS here, how do you make those minutest detail to be so sharp?

Lovely landscape. It is a worry about the falling level of water.

Absolutely magnificent shot. I am in awe.

'Kalantikan', I've been very impressed with my new little mirrorless Fuji x-t1. It has a setting to adjust the sharpness which I have bumped up a bit. Most all my images go to Lightroom and sometimes PS, some with just a little adjustment, others with alot. I think on this one I adjusted the contrast to bring out the reflections in the water.
