I always have my camera with me. You have heard this from me many times. One night while in Vegas I grabbed my tripod and took a long walk doing night shots of Vegas. Las Vegas is actually best photographed at night. The Lights and people add to the images. Afterall Vegas is all about the lights. This was a hard image to get as there is no good angle because of pedestrian bridges and cars. But, I did find a spot and was able to get the image shown here.
The cool thing about Moab, Utah is you can stay in the village and with less than an hour driving time be in some amazing places. On one side of the highway is canyons and the other side arches. This was made in Arches National Park. Great hiking, lots of places to photograph. You’ll need at least several days to capture the area properly. Sunrise and sunset are the best times obviously. The air is clear and if you get there late October to early November you may get a beautiful dusting of snow.
