the brightest spot on earth

Well past midnight flying over the brightest spot on planet Earth, Las Vegas, Nevada.


The plane was banking hard to the left here, giving me a straight shot down from 22,000 feet.


Over 1,500,000 people, three airports, eleven separate municipalities, three interstate freeways, 75,000 hotel rooms, and billions of dollars in gambling money are captured in this single exposure.
