Nice, I am wondering if a UV filter would have helped removing the blue colour cast in the distance, but I like the photo overall a lot. I've been to Red Rock Canyon and the Valley of Fire myself when I was in Las Vegas last. Aren't those amazing locations?

@Hans ter Horst: Indeed they are, but the tours sometimes didn't seem to provide enough time in the parks. I agree about the UV filter, but I had just purchased the D7000 camera the day before leaving for my trip, so I didn't have any filters yet. :-(

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Good crisp shot Steven, I like the layers of different material shown in those mountains as well as the long stretch of the road.

Wild and huge space ! I didn't visit Nevada while I was in the US. I guess it's a very nice setting, when you love nature.
