"Snow and Moon, Red Rock Canyon" ~ On a rare snowy day in western Las Vegas, I headed to the nearby Red Rock National Conservation Area to take some photos of the snow-covered mountains and foothills. I noticed where the path of the setting moon was heading, so I looked for a location and composition to capture the moon before it disappeared into the clouds that were rolling over the peaks. The result is one of my personal favorite photos of Red Rock.
"Modern Vegas III" ~ Vignette of Cleveland Clinic's chaotically beautiful Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in downtown Las Vegas. The undulating stainless steel covered structure was designed by the master of deconstructivist architecture, Frank Gehry.
"Sailboat Sunset on the Bay" ~ It's hard to top watching the sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge. Until two sailboats line up on either side of the setting sun, that is! It was a chilly September night as our catamaran tour sailed around Alcatraz and throughout San Francisco Bay. Just minutes after capturing "Through the Sail" and passing under the bridge then back again, the sun was just about to dip into the ocean amidst a peach and purple sky when two sailboats lined up on each side -- one near, one far. Thanks for that, captains.
