Red Rock Canyon – Redux (Tuesday)

This morning I decided to go back down to Red Rock Canyon, about an hour southeast of Pahrump, to take photos with the morning sun at my back.  I posted some pictures from there a few days ago as I drove from Las Vegas to Pahrump, but that was late in the afternoon as the sun was moving behind some of the formations.  There was also a light cloud cover which affected the quality of some shots.

This was from the road heading towards the Canyon:

When I finally reached the Canyon I stopped again at the Visitor Center:

Then I embarked on the 13-mile road through the Canyon:

This is a 4-shot panorama, left to right, of the main formation shown above.  I believe I posted pictures from the same vantage points a few days ago, but these are now in full sun.

And these are some other formations deeper in the Canyon:

And here another vantage point of one of the first pictures in this post.  In the hour and a half that elapsed between the two photos you can already see a change in the colors, how the red line is more enhanced.
