10-17 Fisheye At Hoover Dam

Been travelling lately. Went to Mt Rainier last month and just got back from Las Vegas. Brought my KX with Tamron 18-250 and my 10-17 fisheye. I was PP'ing my pictures tonight and ran across this one. I was so glad I brought the fisheye as it got a lot of use on this trip.
Here is a shot of Hoover Dam. I was thinking of this shot all the way there. Took the "Dam" Tour and it ended up at the top of the dam by the highway. This is what you see from the top. More of the trip to follow soon.

The new bridge is up but not opened yet. I had not been to the Dam since 1985 and was surprised at all of the security changes they have implemented. The tour was not near as thorough as it used to be.
The fisheye was perfect for this outing though.
thanks for the comments

Nice shot. The fisheye really takes it all in. I have started to sell mine from time to time but then I get it out and take a few shots with it and decide that it is in my bag to stay....
