Valley of Fire @ Sunset

It's almost sunset, let's stay for that, said the husband. He's pretty sure that the rocks would look mighty different under twilight. Now, I'm beating myself up for not thinking about this as I'm supposed to be the photoblogger here. But it turns out the husband in the past couple of years have become more of a shutterbug than I am. True story. He's the one now always seeing photogenic things. I used to be that way.

Anyway, so we stuck around for a little bit longer excited to witness sunset. Now all the images are unaltered, pure unadulterated SOOC. Enjoy.

Elsewhere some rocks are turning yellowish.

Somewhere behind the rock there's a sun getting ready to sleep.

Now that is a beautiful ending to this mind-blowing experience like an exclamation point at the end of the sentence.

This ends the VALLEY OF FIRE series. I hope that you'd put this park in your itinerary when you find yourself in Vegas or somewhere near it.
