Valley of Fire in Nevada-Part 1
We drove from Lake Mead to Utah on Wednesday, but before we did that we spent a couple of days exploring Valley of Fire state park in Nevada.
This place is a photographers paradise, and now that I have a new camera, Al inherited my old one and he’s not bored waiting for me anymore. Which is great for both of us. We saw and photographed different things each day, taking a bazillion photos. So, I will break everything up into several posts. These images are from Sunday evening. Late afternoon, early evening is the very best time to be in the Valley of Fire. The light on the red rocks is simply amazing. We parked, and just started walking all around the rock formations.
There are several formations that look like waves. They just may be my favorite.
There are multi layered openings in the rock all over.
Textures, shapes, shadows, colors. It’s so much to take in.
We visited Valley of Fire a couple years ago, but it was a really quick evening hike, and then a sunrise drive. We were determined to spend more quality time there this year.
The view from every angle can’t be beat.
I was really glad there were a few clouds in the sky, makes landscape shots so much more interesting.
I did some research on were the best places in the park for photography are, and we spent the next two days hiking, and finding great things to see and photograph. So much more coming up in the next few posts.
