Weekly photo challenge- FROM ABOVE


This week's WordPress photo challenge theme 'from above' opened up too many shots for inclusion,

so I have been strict and included one destination which you should include in any visit to the Arizona/Nevada state line where it crosses the Colorado at the Hoover dam.

These shots are taken from the new hoover dam bypass bridge on US highway 93. It is officially called the Mike O'Callaghan Pat Tilman Memorial Bridge and relieves a huge amount of traffic which previously had to join the slow moving traffic along the hoover dam.

Make time to stop and take the tour down inside the dam – you will be impressed and if you go in the summer months it will get you out of the sun!

See the shots and interpretation of others here

Thanks for visiting.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. It’s an old 90s movie with Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry. They would throw coins there and make a wish. Anyway, you’re welcome. I hope you could stop by my site too. 🙂


  2. You are too kind- thank you! Not quite 6 months into this blogging experience and just about getting the hang of it. ‘Meeting’ other lovely bloggers like you is the best bit 🙂


  3. I really love browsing your photos because I get to learn sooo much. Have a great weekend! and thanks for stopping by. I look forward to your posts!
