For those of you not from the Charleston area the title may need an explanation...
Just downhill from where I stood when I took this photo is a casino near a town called Cross Lanes. The new casino has brought many promised jobs, and more than its share of trouble to the community. A friend of mine told me the new name, and I've used it endlessly since: Cross Vegas.
I'm not sure why part of this hill has been cleared...I saw no evidence of imminent construction. But with the sun setting and the dirt glowing red I thought it was a great imitation of the desert around that other Vegas.
Just perfect... Best wishes from Bavaria, Germany from Michael :-)
Thanks so much, Michael...I greatly appreciate the visit and look forward to reviewing your gallery over the next several days!
All the best,
I love this photo. Good contrast of the brown hillside and blue sky. Was it sunset? I always love your photos. (And btw, I got the title right away).
lol...heard a friend call it Cross Vegas about a year ago and I almost forget that's not its name, now! This was taken late in the evening. Thanks again, Wolf.
