(Huge) fluorescent sign for a Mexican restaurant shaped like a Margarita glass.
There are a lot of fountains in Vegas, and I had so much fun shooting long exposures of them.
The pool area at Caesar's Palace.
The ducks in Las Vegas have no fear. I shot this with a 50mm from only a foot or so away.
Another long exposure water shot. So many of the fountains and waterfalls look amazing at night, too, with all of the lights.
Railing detail in front of the Venetian.
More shots at the Venetian.
Every night The Bellagio has fountain shows on the hour and then on the 15 minute mark. I'm sure that we saw a couple dozen of them while we were there. It never gets old. This one was my personal favorite.
I'm calling this a billboard although a sign that spans the height of an entire hotel is really much more than a billboard. There is something about this shot that really appeals to me.
This is another one of my absolute favorite shots from the trip. I have taken versions of this shot during the day in Milwaukee, but it was amazing to nail it at night in a new location.
One of the off the strip excursions that we took was to the Hoover Dam. I'm sure that I'll put together an entire post of Hoover Dam pictures at some point.
And finally, the other off the strip excursion that we took was to the Red Rock Canyon. I had never seen anything like this in person before, and there really are no words to describe what it is like when you're right there in the middle of it. This isn't necessarily my best shot from the trip, but it is my favorite view.
Stay tuned next week for part 2!
