Ralph is right, this IS a wonderful and outstanding series...but then I LOVE the deserts of Nevada and California and eastern Oregon.....And you can see why they call it rainbow mountain...especially after a desert rainstorm and the sun is clearing around - through the mist one can see the colours very well...Beautiful image ghere, Steven!

Aptly named - beautiful shot of this peak Steven! The mountain really stands out against the background as it rises up from the desert floor. Excellent!

It's beautiful. That mountain has what looks like a reddish cast to it. Now I am looking forward to seeing your summer in Chicagoland shots.

Wow! I am learning Vegas has some phenomenal landscapes. I've never taken many landscape photos but did just invest in a wide angle so I could begin experimenting. Love this! Hope you find more fabulous Vegas spots!
