Mojave National Preserve During Winter

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

While driving from Las Vegas to Long Beach, California, I snapped this HDR shot of the Mojave National Preserve. This HDR photo was taken at a rest area off Highway 15. I plan on doing some shooting in Las Vegas but first I need to say hello to some old friends in Long Beach. I will also be doing some shooting with the Vero Beach photography group photographing the beautiful lights of the Las Vegas night life.
