Vegas. Vegas was tough because I only had one late afternoon and nights to shoot. I didn't want to carry my tripod down the strip so most of the photos with the 35mm were taken in day light.

Red Rock Canyon was incredible. I wished I had time to do the hikes. Therefore I could only take shots from the scenic road.

By the time I go to Hoover Dam, it was close to sunset. I stayed for a while to catch the lights at night but it was a bit underwhelming.

I'm sure they it will be quite an experience for them.

I am always more impressed by natural terrain than any man-made scape. I was in Vegas because work brought me there. Hoover dam was impressive for what was achieved and the contributions that it has on the south west, but going to the canyon and standing among the rocks was indeed a humbling experience.

Love them, makes me a little "homesick" I lived out there for 9 months. The economy was terrible out there though, so back to cold, wintery Wisconsin I came :)

Beautiful shots!

The first two shots of the dam are great! As well as all of the shots of the canyons. Well done :)
