Lake Mead

Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Bootleg Canyon were the destinations on one of the days during our visit to Las Vegas. These all happened on on the same day, but I am going to post them one by one, because I have so many pictures to share. I have some great memories or shoud I say memorable memories from Lake Mead, Once we were caught in a sandstorm and hide in the water with just our head out of water. I nearly lost may angles – life during a water ski accident… Yeah I remember this place.

Neon lights galore

No, I am not finished yet. These are mostly from the Las Vegas strip and from our hotel window. Light treatment continues in this post.

Downtown Las Vegas ~2

Those who have followed my blog know that I always take tons of photos, so did you expect me to have taken so few from downtown, really did you?

Here goes the blast of neon lights continues – sorry 🙂

Downtown Las Vegas

If you travel to Las Vegas downtown is a must see, but I have to admit it is not my favorite place in Las Vegas. It is too loud, crowded for my taste. Different music surrounding you from every direction, the total cacophony of sounds. People just everywhere. But the lights are something different, not something you see at home that’s for sure. Though during the dark months they surely would considered as light treatment to the people who walk in in the darkness for several months.

Never lose Hope

I will still remain in Las Vegas, I am trying to keep the timeline right, I will also remain colorful even if it is not nature photos. Las Vegas night life and lights will be my next topic for several posts.

This is from down town Las Vegas. The sign caught my attention that is the reason for the topic.

Las Vegas Desert

The second day we where contemplating as what to do. As stated we do not gamble so instead of heading to the casinos we went to see sights. Our first place to visit was Valley of Fire in the Mojave Desert. It is unbelievable that in the middle of the desert you can find these beautiful red rock formations. I will post several post from there as I did take so many photos of this colorful place.

These photos are from the drive through the “normal” Las Vegas desert with the mountains surrounding it beautifully. It does not look that spectacular, but if you look closely you can see beauty here too. What do you think, have I captured beauty of the desert?

I am back from Las Vegas

It is mid November, the darkness and grayness is starting to get to me. This is the time I start to hibernate. I have no desire to go out or do much. I have decided to try to pass this period by posting photos from my trip in October to Las Vegas and California. I have posted several in my FB profile but now I will try to tackle them in chronicler order. So my first photos are from the hotel that we stayed at in Las Vegas The Aria Resort and Casino. I am not a gambler, but I did spend some time at the pool and walked through the place several time. It is huge, just to get out you end up walking a kilometer

Lake Mead and Hoover dam

Today we visited lake Mead and Hoover dam, it was not and warm even though it is October. I only took few photos with my mobile. Here is some pre photos as I will empty my camera when I get home

Sun

I am totally enjoying the weather here in Las Vegas. Pool day for me. The pool is not that big but we are safe. There is three lifeguards working the pool in 30 minute shifts.

Sunday Stills: Night Shots

I don’t have that many night shots as I seem to be home then, or I’ve  left the camera home when I am.  Maybe I should do something about it… These shots I found from  Las Vegas  as it is all about nightlife and lights.
