Nice! Is that the stratosphere? I'll be staying there in Oct!

Dewdrop said...

What an amazing view. You must have been way on up there, eh?

Carver said...

I love the contrast between the night and day shots. They are both great!

Joy said...

Fantastic captures! I like the day and night comparisons. Lovely.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow for more of Norwich!

Amazing views, night and day are a good comparission, thanks for sharing with us all in sky watch friday.

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? :)

Reader Wil said...

What a difference a day makes! Stunning views!

Dagrun said...

I tend to prefer the night view. It's really beautiful!

Colin Campbell said...

Looks much better at night.

Carol said...

Oh I love comparison shots...I think the night one is my fave....love the lights...but I also like the day shot...so much depth....love the mountains...

Maria said...

Nice shots! Both day and night shots are great! But the architecture is stunning :)

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Great posting for two contrasting time of day. Dark sky in the night and clear blue sky in broad daylight.

Bim said...

These are fun, thanks :)

Pam said...

You must have been up pretty high to capture such wonderful day and night shots... they are fantastic!

PJ said...

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!

koala said...

I am just waiting for Nick Stokes & Cathrine to arrive at your photo;)

Janie said...

Beautiful cityscapes. I like the night view especially.

susieofarabia said...

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!!!

Deborah Godin said...

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!

Sylvia K said...

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

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

I like both photos, but I prefer the night shot. The lights are beautiful.

Guy D said...

Excellent contrast in photos, the night one is definately my favourite.

Have a great weekend.

Gennasus said...

Great shots, love the night one.

B Squared said...

It really is a very photogenic city.

Luke Wiley said...

The stratosphere is so impressive!

Ginnie said...

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

J Bar said...

I like the contrasting shots.

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

sixstars said...

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

Pacey said...

I love the night shot. Shows how big and beautiful the city is with night lights on.

Willa said...

wow! amazing!!!!

Ebie said...

You have a good vantage view of your night and day shots. Beautiful!

Tara R. said...

Annie said...

Thanks for your visit to my skies today...I like the shots you have here...for a moment I thought that first one was NY!

lisa mertins said...

i see from your earlier posts that you're at circus circus, right? i'm like you, not a vegas kind of gal. but there are things i have found that i love there. old school vegas is one of them. nice fun shots and i enjoy your repartee as well! thanks for visiting life illustrated.

Karen said...

Very nice contrast between day and night...

Great captures !!

Linnea W said...

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!

Kim said...

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

Light and Voices said...

I like the night shot. It is really pretty. The day photo give us a better prospective of the area.

Awesome shots both!
Happy weekend.

Great contrast between day and night. Looks very colourful at night - as expected. I guess!

Is this Vegas? Great shots and not a bad view at all! :-)

Arija said...

Night and day, yu are the one...
beautiful contrast between the dynamics in both shots.

krizcpec said...

coool!

Kitty said...

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..

Linda said...

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!

the donG said...

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

SandyCarlson said...

These are very grand. Lovely.

Heart of Rachel said...

It's beautiful at day time and striking at night.
