Mirage Volcano (Las Vegas) & Snow

Following on from last week's My World Tuesday post, here are some photos of the volcano attraction in from of the Mirage as it erupts. It starts with fountains of water and colored lights.
Bursts of fire appear.
Fire jets play across the pond in front of the hotel, synchronized with music.
Fire runs down the waterfall.
And finally it all ends with one last explosion.
And, here's a bonus photo from my house on Thursday afternoon, after we got yet more snow. This is about as opposite to the following photos as I could think of!

  1. What a light/water show!! It really looks like a vulcan! WoW! =)

    Snow at this time of the year?! :o Well, it has happened here in my country, too.. 1st May for many many years ago.. But last Thursday?!
    But-- what a nice place you live in! You have all the nature around you, I guess.. :)

    Have a nice day! :)

  2. Ah, once again, only in Vegas!! Terrific captures, Al! It's not hard for me to believe you've had snow so recently! It's still unseasonably chilly here in Seattle, but at least we're having a little sun -- enough that I don't have to wear layers to take Sam for a walk!! Hope your week is off to a good start!

  3. Las Vegas is spectacular! So, this is your surroundings? When we lived in the country, we were surrounded by farmland. :)

  5. Nice getaway and beautiful pictures. I had to do a little searching to see where you lived with all that snow (and I wasn't surprised)! Enjoying my first visit, thanks for sharing.

  8. Amazing contrasts that made me smile. After seeing what creative geniuses can do to simulate a volcano it almost seemed like the last photo was simulated snow. But even though it’s not, the scene really appears more restful than the stunning glitter of the Mirage. :)

  9. What a joy for the sense of sight. Have to admit, that I do miss snow and its weather.

    Please have a good Tuesday.

  10. The snowy scene looks so restful after the fury of the volcano. Although I've never lived where there's snow, so that's from a purely theoretical point of view. :) Great photos, and nice contrast of subjects!

  16. I'm glad to see this didn't have anything to do with Rapture 2011!
    & I am happy to say I can appreciate the beautiful Winter scene after having been away from snow for a few months.
