    Great shots (who’s ever they are)! I used to see the Hoover dam a lot when I was a kid. I partly grew up near the Glen Canyon dam, which is the same sort of construction (by the way a hugely contentious project). The sheer scale of such a project still stretches the capacity of my mechanically challenged mind. Amazing.

      It is difficult to imagine the enormity of such a structure!!! Quickly got a bit of background on the Glen Canyon Dam… Awesome!!! Thanks for making me aware of it!!!🙂 **

    Wow, what an awesome project, I LOVE that fourth last one looking down all the cables. The photographer has some courage climbing up there that’s for sure, they must be actually working on the project otherwise they’d never get access into locations like this.

    Good collection of bridge photography. I get nostalgic, remembers me of something in my past. I enjoyed looking at the process of the structure’s coming to existence. Thx for sharing

    I love these — especially the birds-eye view of the cables running down to the bridge (4th up from the bottom). What were your settings? Amazing to have the cables near in focus as well as the things on the ground, especially at night!
