THE WIDER VIEW: Taking shape, the new bridge at the Hoover Dam

Creeping closer inch by inch, 900 feet above the mighty Colorado River, the two sides of a $160 million bridge at the Hoover Dam slowly take shape. The bridge will carry a new section of US Route 93 past the bottleneck of the old road which can be seen twisting and winding around and across the dam itself.

When complete, it will provide a new link between the states of Nevada and Arizona. In an incredible feat of engineering, the road will be supported on the two massive concrete arches which jut out of the rock face.

The arches are made up of 53 individual sections each 24 feet long which have been cast on-site and are being lifted into place using an improvised high-wire crane strung between temporary steel pylons.

Beautiful Tilt Photography

Tilt-Shift photography is a technique often used to create that miniature scene feel. You know that feeling [of superiority] when you're…playing with micro-machines, or holding those tiny bottles of liquor, or reading Gulliver’s Travels? Well tilt-shift photography can achieve that look with life-size locations and/or objects through the use of special lenses and camera movements; or you can fake it using Adobe Photoshop.
