Last week I featured the first of several images taken on my incoming flight to Phoenix in early April. That image of Roosevelt Lake and Dam began the series. Only a few moments southwest (at passenger jet speeds), I captured much of Apache Lake, the second of four reservoirs on the Salt River. Horse Mesa Dam isn’t visible in this image as it’s “around the bend” at the upper left end of the lake. According to the information provided on the Salt River Project website, the dam is some 305 feet (93 m) tall and generates electricity from three hydroelectric generators. You can find more information about Horse Mesa Dam and Apache Lake here.
About the photo: About the photo: Captured by my Samsung S20U, I processed it in Lightroom and Luminar Neo. I had to crop out a bit of the aircraft window at the bottom of the image. As we flew over the area, we were too close to the upriver side of the lake for me to capture its entire length. Click on the image above to view it in 2K HD on my Flickr site (and see the gallery of Cellpic Sunday images from this Flight to Phoenix series.)
I encourage fellow bloggers to create their own Cellpic Sunday posts. I never have a specific topic for this feature, and the only rules are that the photo must be captured with a cell phone, iPad, or another mobile device… If you have an image from a drone or even a dashcam, that’s acceptable as well. The second rule is to link your challenge-response to this post or leave a comment here with a link to your post in the comment.
