The Meadows

The Strip in Las Vegas (The Meadows). Rarely in this desert valley are there clouds... and when there are clouds, normally they're stratus clouds. When it rains, though, it storms. This is the sunset scene of a storm we had a few weeks ago. I was unsure if the break in the system would last long enough to let in some of the sunset light. It did, and in a huge way!

Las Vegas is known for its spectacular sunsets... but I have never, until now, witnessed the mix of magenta, pink, purple, and blue that was present in this sunset.

This is an HDR panorama created from 3-horizontal HDR frames using Photoshop. Each HDR frame was created from 3 RAW images using Photomatix Pro.
