My first “Fine Art Friday” of 2012 begins with a photograph I couldn’t wait to share (but, I did wait for a week). This is from my trip last week to Las Vegas, Nevada – the first time I had been there.
Seeing this little “splash” of sunlight from the sun setting behind the mountains stopped me in my tracks. I had been exploring Hoover Dam, not getting much for photos I really liked, and decided to walk over the Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge (Colorado River Bridge) — a breathtaking view, and definitely one that you want to avoid if you are afraid of heights. Looking back through the hills, I caught this last bit of light from the setting sun that looked like it was splashing through the hills. I knew I had to try to capture it.
