Well, the snowbird season is just about over. I’m sitting in our campsite in Port Angeles, Washington, where we will spend a day before hopping on the ferry to head back across the line to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where we will spend the summer.
It’s been an amazing winter with 80 degree days almost every day and I have about a gazillion more photos to share!
I’m about a month behind in photo processing and I skipped lots of places along the way, so I’ll have many more photos from the trip to share with you over spring and summer. Plus, I’m sure I’ll be making new photos, hopefully more photos of Orcas taken from my boat 🙂
Today’s Photo: Fire Wave (again)
Here’s yet another photo from Fire Wave in the Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada. In case you missed it, I have other photos from Fire Wave here and here.
I could spend days photographing here!

I made this photo just after the sun went down, so the soft light gives it a very different feel from the previous shots yet it still shows off all the different colours and patterns in the rock in the Valley of Fire.
I like making photos of the same place under different lighting conditions. You really learn a lot about light by doing that. Give it a try!

Beautiful shot Annie, I like the softer tones that that time of day provided you. The patterns in those rocks remind me of oil & water.
Great shot. I’ve been to Valley of Fire recently and didn’t find this beautiful formation. Great composition!

Lovely shot… in a way romantic…
Vanessa @ Green Global Travel says
Lovely photo! The light of just after the sun going down makes it a pale fire. I’ll have to see this someday!
Great photos! I plan to visit Valley of Fire over Thanksgiving and take some photos but I can’t get permission from the park to photograph one hour before sunrise or one hour after sunset. You have been there and it looks like you have taken images at sunset. I am a photographer but don’t do it for a living and I am not leading any kind of workshop. Just heading down to Vegas for a little vacation. Do you have any input on this? Did you get a ticket when you got back to your car?

When I was there I stayed at the campground inside the park. That gives you access to the area around the campground after sunset, but you still don’t have access to the main scenic drive after sunset. The scenic drive technically closes at sunset though, so lots of people photograph sunset and then go back to their cars. I’m sure you’ll love it, it’s a great spot.
