Encore Sunset

One of the nice things about visiting Las Vegas in July is it’s Monsoon Season. So you have a higher probability of rain, which of course can bring some great clouds, especially around sunset. So was the case on Thursday, July 23, 2009. Has clouds in the sky all day, and when the sun started to set they started to light up and catch that setting “glow.” Was heading south parallel to the Strip and saw these great clouds passing above the Encore. Pulled off at Tropicana, swung North again headed down some side roads and ended up… not really sure in a pseudo parking lot thing. Grabbed the D3 and snapped a few frames- both landscape and portrait, with the portrait really emphasizing the clouds, their formation and their color.. The Encore’s glass did a great job of reflecting the shimmering clouds- its facade changed color as the minutes passed and the sun dropped lower and lower.
