New Croton Dam
Hudson Valley

Built around the turn of the century (start of the 20th), to contribute toward New York City's water supply, it's said to be the third largest hand-hewn structure in the world (China's Great Wall and The Great Pyramid of Giza occupy the two top spots).


Living in England, and working in construction and riding moptorcycles year-round, I'm no stranger to cold weather. But shooting this pano in January 2014, the temperature was so cold that by the time I'd removed my gloves and changed a lens, I could not feel the shutter button - I literally had to look to locate my finger in the right spot!

The white on the trees isn't frost - it's ice from the spray from the spillway.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
