My last morning in Nevada was spent at Valley of Fire to catch a sunrise photograph of Elephant Rock. Afterwards, I drove over to the Rainbow Vista area to capture some of the awesome colors of the sandstone that make up this area. You can see some rose-purple sandstone, bedded with some yellow sandstone and of course the stripped red and white sandstones of the bluff.
I was just amazed that you could actually find such different colors of rock all within the same photograph. Valley of Fire State Park and Rainbow Vista does not disappoint!
I took this photograph using a Canon 5DSR with my EF 70-200mm f/4L IS with a focal length of 70mm. I shot the photograph with my camera set at f/16, 1/100 sec shutter speed and my ISO set at 100.

I then processed the photograph in Lightroom, brought it into Photoshop to check for dust spots, and then a quick visit to Nik ColorEfx Pro plugin to bring out some of the colors without going overboard (which is so easy to do!). And here is the end result. I hope you enjoy!
