Hoover Dam Artistic Impressions

The best way to view the pictures is to use the links below.

There are several attractive ways to experience the many aspects of an impressive construction like the Hoover Dam.
I’ve posted some wider views to give an impression of the grandeur of this enormous project. Close up images of construction-parts, prohibition signs, power towers and intake towers.

Today some artistic impressions. Not with the eyes of a tourist visiting interesting landmarks, but with the eyes of a visitor in a museum for modern art.

◙ The main picture is a diptych of two picture with the shadow of an intake tower in the green water of Lake Mead
◙ The first workshop is a diptych with two scenes of the contrast between the white concrete of the dam against the dark green of the lake.
◙ The second workshop is a graphical presentation of the silhouette of a power tower against the soft blue of the sky.

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
