A few months ago I received an email from one of my readers, Don Davis. He said he lives in Nevada near a beautiful spot called the Valley of Fire and also happens to own a small RV park. He offered my husband and I a free RV spot in exchange for some photography advice and help with his website.
After looking at some images from the Valley of Fire I decided this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up and so we made plans to visit in March.
The RV park, Palm Creek Gardens, is about 45 minutes from the park in Moapa. Don and his wife Marsha have a few acres of property beside a hot spring, dozens of fruit trees, a yard with a huge barbecue pit for the campers, a whole bunch of dogs and horses, and about a dozen RV spaces. It’s a beautiful spot that I highly recommend to anyone who is planning an RV trip to the Valley of Fire.
As for the Valley of Fire itself, I think it’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! The east entrance to the park has more rock arches than I’ve ever seen. They are not as big as those you find in Arches National Park, but there are hundreds of small arches.
The park is a photographer’s paradise full of stunning rock formations in all the colours of the rainbow. Red, orange, pink, yellow and even blue and purple!! The photo below is the view you will see from your car on the park’s scenic drive.
You don’t even have to hike anywhere to see beauty like that. But I couldn’t stop myself from taking the opportunity to explore this amazing land. There is an endless supply of stunning views with fabulous colour, lines and textures.
This is only the beginning! I will have many, many more images to show you from this astonishing place.
My next eBook/eCourse is coming out soon and it contains 8 weekly lessons and assignments. I will show you a combination of camera skills, the elements of good image design, and creative photography techniques.
I’m super excited about it because this time you will have the choice of learning on your own or getting personalized feedback on your assignments!
