Reno Arch

This is a composite of several long exposure images shot at sunset and compiled with StarStaX. I then used my Nik Analog Efex Pro software to add some texture to the final image.

Climbing the wall

The Whitney Peak Hotel in downtown Reno has an indoor and outdoor climbing facility.  The outdoor wall reaches the top of the building.  Not every climber challenges the big wall, but when they do, it attracts onlookers on the street below who cheer the climber on at every step.  Half way up, the climber took the time to wave to the adoring crowd below.  Her friend decided to lay on the sidewalk to get a better view of the climb.
