Thanks to the Deputy Dog blog for unveiling these awesome hidden towers of Nevada:
Although they look like retro-futurist prefab apartments, the structures are actually the water intake towers for the Hoover Dam's hydro-electric power station. The images were taken during the construction of the dam, and the towers are now mostly submerged in water. See the Deputy Dog blog for more images.
"The images were taken during the construction of the dam, and the towers are now mostly submerged in water."
Of course, each year this gets closer to becoming false. I remember when I was a kid going to the dam and the water was only a few feet below the walkways that connect the towers. I remember a few years later being in a boat against one of the rock faces and the line between normal rock and "bleached" rock that marked the highest point of the lake was close enough to touch. Now the surface is 50+ feet lower from that line and about a third of the "underwater" portion of those towers no longer is.
