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.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  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!


i'd love to hear from you...
