If there is any one place to shoot night-time HDR photographs it would be Las Vegas. Las Vegas is so full of night lights. So many, it’s overwhelming. That was one of the reasons I didn’t get many photos. I just didn’t know where to start. The other reason was, it was freezing! You know it’s cold when the puddles start turning into ice. Not that I mind the cold but I certainly wasn’t prepared for freezing. I never thought the desert could ever get this cold. If Las Vegas is the City of Sin then hell just froze over.
