I don’t have a ton of photos to post from Las Vegas. I was mostly just enjoying spending time with family there. I do have a few though. The first is a night time shot from the Stratosphere. I thought this would make a good place to watch the sun setting and also a nice spot to get a night time picture of the Las Vegas Strip. It is a terrific view, but the view is a obstructed by one unlit tower on the left edge of the photo. Also, between the wind and the rides operating on the top of the Stratosphere, it really isn’t stable enough for time lapse photography.
We visited the Hoover Dam and walked across the new bridge. I liked this shot of the bridge’s shadow on the dam. It was a disappointing place to take pictures though, because no matter what angles I chose I seemed to always have a rat’s nest of power lines in the frame.
This was billed as the world’s largest chocolate fountain. Mmmmmmmmmmm… …chocolate!I couldn’t back up quite far enough to fit the whole thing into the frame–so the top of the fountain is cut off. I really MUST get a wider angle lens.
