Barely Processed

Here are some leftover photos from several days ago at Floyd Lamb Park. As the title says, I did a very tiny bit of processing on these photos, they are almost as they were right out of the Nikon. It’s been another beautiful day in the valley with sunshine and low 70s. You can get your daily Las Vegas forecast here, haha!

A Pseudo Sunset

Last eve’s sunset was nothing spectacular but this is what I captured. The photo of the woman fireman and truck was taken on the side of an elementary school, the artist did a darn good job of honoring our local heroes, heroes that I thank every time I get the chance. The palm tree photo is leftover from the other day. Today’s forecast is for 86 degrees and sunshine, another beautiful day in Las Vegas Valley. These photos were minimally processed.

Fabulous

Have you had your photo taken in front of this sign or drove past it? I’ve never been in front of the sign as the thing usually has so many tourists there. Have I driven past it? Dozens of times. Come visit, venues are slowly reopening.

Descending

A Regional Jet approaches the threshold at our McCarran International Airport. The distant clouds add a bit of flair to the photo. The RJ is my favorite aircraft to fly in, short takeoffs and landings too. Let’s get high together! 😎

A Short Visit to The Park

It is so beautiful outside today that I decided to head back to the park for some bird photos again. I was a bit disappointed though as there weren’t many birds there in terms of species, mostly ducks, geese, and plenty of coots. The turtles were a nice surprise though, I thought they were Snapping turtles but they look more like Painted turtles basking in the warm noon sunshine. My sister and I had turtles as pets when we were children.

Swirling Light

Bored this afternoon, I snapped a photo of the dining room light over the table and processed the crap out of it. I used iColorama, Aurora HDR, and Photoscape X which are my usual workhorses. Meanwhile, the strong winds have returned since around ten this morning but still such a beautiful spring day in the valley with sunshine and 85 delightful degrees. And before ya know it, it’ll be 115 degrees again. I hope the heat is less intense than last summer.
