The Work of Mother Nature at Red Rock Canyon

7

How many people visit Las Vegas and stay in the casino day and night? Well, that's how I use to be. I love the sin city, and I have always gambled all day long whenever I was there, but after a while, I started to finally realize that's not a very healthy way to spend my vacation!

So, I researched online to see what else I can do while visiting Las Vegas, and there! I found it! Red Rock Canyon! It’s only 30 minutes away from the main strip, and unlike wasting bunch of money in the city, it only cost $5.00 per car to get into this beautiful national park. Just as the name suggests, the canyon is RED! It’s a little bit hard to see in most of the pictures because I used a red scale film, but you can at least see how beautiful the canyon is!

There are so many trails you can go on and some of them take a few hours to hike back, so if you want to try out diffirent trails, I suggest you to get there early. We got there around 3 o’clock, so we only got to try out 2 trails, but both of them were differently amazing! During the hiking, we actually run across some rock climbers, and that was also interesting to see. Of course, that means, you could be the one to try rock climbing, too!
You can forget about the busy city life for a day, and wonder into the work of Mother Nature at Red Rock Canyon!

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
