Many photos of the fire-wave from the valley of fire, just outside (60km) of Las Vegas. Most of them are in colour with the occasional interpretation in monochrome. I chose to represent in black and white for a few reasons. 1) Just to be different. 2) I felt that on this particular day, the sky/colour combination just didn't work. 3) Wanted the picture to have some "punch" in the wave bands without the image looking way over-done. My only gripe is that I wish somehow I could have gotten the tip of the wave a little higher over the background cliffs.
This was a two shot pano taken with D3X, 24mm PC-E.
