This photograph was taken on our recent vacation at the Valley of Fire state park in Nevada. The park is less than an hour north of Vegas and close to a portion of Lake Meade, it is Nevada's oldest and largest state park dedicated in 1935. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph. I really like the red rocks in our travels. Because of the landscape and lack of wildlife most of the photographs I took were landscapes, not something I do often or am very good at. The last time I used my wide angle lens I showed no one the photos because the sides were distorted and I just thought they were terrible. I learned one lesson and removed the filter from the lens before leaving. The bulk of my photos were shot out west with a wide angle lens so I hope as I get to looking at them some came out good.
