Rainy Day Adventure

It’s not often I get the chance to take pictures in the rain, but Wylde and I had a few hours to spare while we waited for my mother at the beauty salon. The Springs Preserve was close to the salon so we took full advantage of the extra time together. Plus, I got the chance to try out my new Nikon D7100 in something other than the endless sunlight of our desert!

    • Thanks Mary. Did you visit the Springs Preserve before you moved from Vegas? It’s a bit on the expensive side, but worth it if you have half a day to explore everything.

  1. Superb pics as always (((((bro))))). I want you to know that you are more than welcome to share these fantastic pics in my photography group as well!!!! Thank you for the smile you gave me this evening!!! I needed to smile. I’m glad you are here for me <3

    • My mother was at a beauty salon inside of the mall, Sue. We enjoyed our adventure in the rain as it’s not often we get that chance in sunny Las Vegas.
