The Las Vegas Strip

Newer Older

The Las Vegas strip as seen after taking off from McCarran International Airport. We took off from runway 1L and made a turn to the west as we climbed. The only way I could have gotten luckier is if the fountains at Bellagio were going.

View a little bigger to really see the buildings. I also have a blog post about the making of this photo.

    Fantastic night shot and very nice detail from you explaining us how did you take it!

    (3200 ISO, ... the new Nikon D700 is unbeatable!)

    Wonderful exposure and excellent noise control. Love the lights and colors. Very clear shot - especially through a window.

    One year later I realize I have a shot from the same day, November 28, 2008, the same time and the same direction but this is from the Rio. Notice the contrail.
