  6. Excellent contrast! Is this Vegas? How do you know that one day shots like this may not be the Ansel Adams of the 21st century? :)

  14. I'm watching the tail end of Ocean's Eleven, they just finished robbing The Bellagio. Vegas must be a fascinating place. Nice SWF shots!

  16. Beautiful cityscapes. I like the night view especially.

  17. Awesome captures! The night shot is gorgeous. I love taking shots from a higher vantage point than just ground level - gives a whole different perspective.
    Thanks for reminding me of SkyWatch - I had forgotten, but I got my post up now!!!

  18. No contest for me - night wins! But on the other hand, day has a real sweeping vista and skyview, so, okay, it's a tie!

  19. Fantastic -- love the drama of the night, but the openness of the day! Terrific shots! Have a great weekend!

  24. It really is a very photogenic city.

  25. The stratosphere is so impressive!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wait. Is this still Vegas, Maria? Dumb question, probably. I can tell it more from the night shot than the day shot!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nice to see a day and night picture of the same place...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would mind a bit of that desert heat. Nice photo shots and blog good to see the AirNZ ad!

  35. Very nice contrast between day and night...

    Great captures !!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like them both...Reminds me of when you travel to a new place and arrive at night in the dark. Then you look out the window, go to bed, and then wake up to daylight and check out the new view...totally different!

  37. Viva Las Vegas skies! Now I can't get the tune "Night & Day" you are the one, out of my head. Thanks, I think :-)

  51. Nice shots - the night time one is my favourite, I like how the city is bright, but you can still see to the edge of the darkness. Is this las Vegas? I've never been, but know it's in a desert..

    ReplyDelete
  52. As much as the sky, I'm struck by the swimming pool in the foreground - sandwiched between a road and an RV park. Suppose it's got to go somewhere!

    ReplyDelete
  53. the place seems to still have enough space for more structures.

    ReplyDelete
  54. These are very grand. Lovely.
