I'm headed to Vegas in a couple weeks. I was told to check out the Valley of Fire north of Vegas. My question for those who have been there, am I going to get better photos in the morning sun or evening sun? Not sure what would be the better time for taking pictures. Thanks in advance!

I was there a couple of weeks ago and I don't think you can go wrong with either early light or late light, though I was there late in the day. How about staying for the entire day so you don't have to choose? :D

I also cant comment on the morning light but i was there from about 3pm to sunset and it was awesome. You can look through the VoF set in my flickr to get an example of the evening light if you want...

I would say to go in the morning.. not so much for the light, although that would be a nice time.... but by the afternoon you will be looking at 100 degrees.........

I went 3 years ago in August. I didn't have a choice of time or days when I went so I had to make do with middle of the afternoon. It was HOT. You can see my pics here:
