Dam Towers

As part of our trip to Las Vegas in May, we took a cheesy tour bus to the Hoover Dam where we got a guided tour down inside the dam and had an hour or so to do some exploration of our own up top. First things first: the Hoover Dam is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen in my life. No photo or video can ever really do it justice. The scale is just ridiculous.

While we were there, I opted go without my tripod so all of my brackets were handheld…this wasn’t too much of a problem since it was the middle of the day and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. It was ridiculously hot (especially for a Canadian ;)) and I forgot to bring sunscreen, so I was madly rattling off brackets in the scorching heat hoping I could get what I wanted before my skin was burned to a crisp. I managed to get a few passable shots given the time of day…here’s one for your enjoyment.
