White Domes Slot

Thanks for all the nice comments yesterday. There’s just something about yesterday’s image from Caesar’s that I don’t like and haven’t been able to put my finger on it. A big thanks to Rick for his constructive feedback which has given me some great insight. I think I will process a couple more of my photos from the area and see how they turn out.

For today, we head back out to the Valley of Fire just outside Las Vegas, Nevada. This is an interesting little slot canyon that I found on the White Domes hiking trail. The whole trail is a mere 1.5 miles long and this section of narrows isn’t more than 300 feet long, but I still found it interesting. Because of the high, narrow walls of slot canyons like this, I find that it’s best to photograph them closer to midday rather than in the morning or late afternoon. It was about 11am when I started on this hike and the temperature had reached 104º so I was pretty glad that the hike was short. I hope you enjoy this one!
