Vegas From The East Side

My first day off of work for good took me to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I’ll post several photos of Lake Mead looking sad later today or tomorrow because of the water level being so very low. Lake Mead Boulevard crosses the entire width of Las Vegas Valley from west to east but continues east through a small pass toward Lake Mead, makes sense right? The road passes near to the peak of Frenchman Mountain.

Most of these ten photos were snapped with my Nikkor 70-300mm lens on the D3300. Since I live on the west side of the valley, I rarely have the opportunity to shoot the Strip or downtown Las Vegas proper from this angle. As a local, it’s kind of fun for me to see the peaks of Red Rock Canyon from so many miles away.

I hope you enjoy!
