In early September I was lucky enough to attend Photoshop World in Las Vegas. Having one extra day to spend before returing to North Carolina I decided to escape the lights and crowds of the strip and to hike around Red Rock Canyon. Spending the day hiking through a thunderstorm the clouds finally parted in the afternoon and gave an incredible light to the landscape. I captured some fantastic photos of the mountains, including the panoramic seen below.

Coincidentially, I was also invited to exhibit work in this year's Randolph Art's Guild annual invitational in October, so this image became the obvious choice for the show. It's not usual that an image gets to be shown so soon after it's initial creation. Below is an image of myself with Art's Guild Executive Director Derrick Sides during the exhibit opening reception on October 4th, 2011.
