The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas has a small lake in front of it, I believe it's 8 acres, every evening they have a water show set to music with the propelled water rising and swaying to the beat of the music. This performance is repeated approximately every 15 mins with different music each time. This creates one of the largest crowd drawing attractions on the Strip. Pictures don't really do it justice! The first picture shows the Bellagio from the sidewalk along Las Vegas Blvd prior to the show. Jim

Very nice! It sure looks like Vegas cooperated with you weather-wise when you were there. Did you use a tripod or a monopod? I've been trying to decide which to get (i.e., which one I would be more likely to carry with me and usemost of the time) and have come to no conclusion yet.

You certainly made good use of your camera while you were (t)here.

Nozama, The pictures were taken in "night scenery" mode by resting the camera on a pillar of a small wall which surrounds the lake. Jim

Thanks Mtngal! Yes we had great weather this year. Last year it snowed during the CES show. I made use of the walls, pillars and posts, (you can see a pillar and part of one in two of the shots), for taking my night shots. I have both, the tripod and a monopod but didn't want to carry either in the crowds. One nice thing is you can usually find something solid to rest the camera on and by using the strap I was able to roll it up under the lens to obtain the elevation I needed. I took over 350 pictures while there. Jim

Did you carry your camera through the casinos? I've always been reluctant to carry my camera around since I've heard about security taking a dim view of photographers in casinos and wondered about just carrying one around.
