This shot is near Las Vegas (which means “the meadows”). I understand there used to be natural springs in the area which made them more meadows and less … desert. Anyway, from a high vantage point, you can see hills for miles.
One last stop before heading out into the desert mountains of Nevada….

At the Valley of Fire in Nevada, there weren’t any lakes. But, I did find a really nice reflection completely by surprise. I was getting back into my car when across the roof, I saw this nice scene.

There is just no end to the weirdness in Las Vegas…
I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas for The Great Scavenger Hunt Meet Up. This was a gathering of photographers who participate in the Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunts over on Google Plus. Anyway, we got up before the sunrise to catch some desert shots. …
Lake Mead is a huge reservoir a few miles East of Las Vegas. The reservoir is created by the Hoover Dam holding back the Colorado River. There was a drought when we were there making the lake level low.
At a little pier, you can rent boats for everything from fishing to swimming. You can even rent big house boats for a weekend on the lake.
