We spent five days in Las Vegas and while there, toured Lake Mead and the Red Rock Canyon. Here are some shots of both, along with some texture and nature studies from each area. As usual, clicking the photos will take you to better, hi-res versions of each picture.

Sometimes when I'm looking up photographing raptors in flight, I will see- way off in the stratosphere- a plane flying overhead. They are flying so high that the photos usually look quite ethereal and "ghostly". Hence, the name. I always imagine these planes full of tourists on their way to warm-sand beach resorts in South America.
