    ■ NY Landscapes & Catskill Mountain ViewsLL-801 The big X, Lake Mead
It was 1977 when we took a trip to Las Vegas. From our hotel, we took a number of trips to various locations including the Hoover Dam located on Lake Mead and the Colorado River. Included in the sight seeing trip was a lunch at the Lake Mead Marina and restaurant and a boat trip on the lake and a view of the Hoover Dam from upstream. The photographs to the left and below were taken from the boat at about high noon. The colors of thlandscape varied from orange to coal black. The picture to the right drew my attention because of the, what seem to be, a large "X" across the landscape. I had no inkling if this phenomena was created by the position of the sun, scarred from a digging or maybe it

was a natural deposit of some mineral. The white line at the bottom of the rock formations indicates the normal average water level of the lake. This water mark is visible on other pictures as well as photographs taken from the Hoover Dam. See the "Landmark" page. The photograph on the left, testifies to the remarkable ability of the landscape to change colors within reasonable distance. The orange deposits shown in image # 1 more closely and the transition to a near black outcropping creates a fascinating environment for zoom lens and wide angle photography.

All photographs were made with Nikon F2, 35/85 Vivitar and 100/250 Soligor The photograph to the right was taken in October about 5 O'clock in the morning at the charter fishing boat dock site located at Noank, Conn.. Sun rises are different than sun sets because the upcoming sun light is overcoming the dark where sun sets are a retreating light source. Because of the moisture in the air an aurora forms when the sun is just about below the horizon. This moment only lasts e few minutes.

Located on one of the many rivers in the Netherlands. I was struck by the odd sight that all the craft moored there, were of the same type and of same manufacture. I do not know if this was intentional or a coincidence but it sure made for an unusual sight. The sky testifies to a cold windy day honoring the climate in that part of Europe.
