Valley of fire hiking in fire Wave trail
Lens: HD 16-85 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Valley of Fire, Nevada

That trail has been officially open for about a year from what I gather, it's only recently been included in the official brochure. At 38C with no shade, it was scorching hot, but the end of the trail made it worth every instant.

The HD 16-85 was used, along with a polarizer to bring out the blue of the sky.




Not completely satisfied about this one, it doesn't do the site justice

Looks like a great place for photography. I really like the first shot in particular and the fifth shot as well. Nice compositions.

Interesting place.
That it is, different from the forest hikes we get back home.

It's becoming known more and more, though the lady at the information center had never hiked it. I told her she should

Thanks. The curves everywhere make it hard to show how large it is, and I find the the perspective of a 16mm lens (I'm still getting used to it) makes it even harder.
