I snapped these photos a couple days ago with the Nikon, just black and white and minimally processed. This location is about three miles north of where Charleston Boulevard terminates at Blue Diamond Road. The wall of rock behind the road’s left turn in one photo is actually seriously ancient sea bed. Las Vegas and the American Southwest were once underwater in a shallow salty sea. A long time ago, about 200 million years ago. Doesn’t that thought make you feel a bit humble?
