[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States in maximum water capacity. It is located on the Colorado River about 24 mi (39 km) from the Strip southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. Formed by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead is 112 miles (180 km) long when the lake is full, has 550 miles (890 km) of shoreline, is around 1,221.4 feet (372.3 meters) at greatest depth, has 247 square miles (640 km2) of surface, and when filled to capacity, 28 million acre-feet (35 km3) of water. However, the lake has not reached this capacity since 1983 due to increasing droughts. (From Wikipedia)

Awesome shor, Eleu.
Superb lightness at the second plan. Equally the shadow at the FP makes a impressive constrat.
Great balance!
Love it

Hi Eleu
The thumbnail did not impress much but upon clicking, it reveals a very beautiful and sharp picture. The marks of the recent maximum water level is very distinct. Equally interesting is the note. So drought is common problem everywhere.

Hi, Eleu. Love those colors of the sky and mountains. Nice exposure, good sharpness and composition. Contrast of the light and shades add to the beauty of this picture. Cheers.
