Default Valley Of Fire, Nevada

I spend a lot of time in the Nevada area, with Las Vegas being an excuse for some of my business activities . The whole area along with California has an unbelievable amount beautiful scenery. I took these on a recent day out with a couple of friends.









Don't ask what the last one is

These shots need contrast boost to approach being interesting.

If you need contrast boost to make things interesting you need to get out more .... I prefer everything 'natural'

Very professional critique Streets and I disagree.

Have you every hiked around with a camera in the VOF?
