This image is from a recent trip Debbie and I made to Las Vegas. It was shot just outside of Caesar’s Palace on a Saturday night. Shooting Vegas is significantly different from my normal comfort zone of nature photography. The flashing lights can make some of the automatic features on the camera useless and the constant foot traffic makes it even more difficult to capture the shot that I hope to. In addition, there are so many vibrant colors flashing that I feel like my camera is going to explode. What I really like about this shot is the feeling of silence that is present when, in reality, there were hundreds of people around me. The waves in the pool really help bring that serenity out. I’m sure I could have done a few little things in adjusting the exposure to make this shot a little better, but overall I am quite pleased with it.
