Description

This is one of the largest composite images of Las Vegas. This was taken from the 61st floor of the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The image captures Las Vegas on a warm sunny day
You can find sunbathers, see people in cafes, count the taxis and limousines. And seeing the Bellagio water feature "turned off" from the 61st floor with sun shining into the water allows you to see the hundreds of high pressure water nozzles used to create the stunning water shows.
It was the last weekend of Spring Break in Las Vegas so lots of activity was poolside.

I want to thank the management of the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino, with a special thanks going to Ms. Kristina Kolk. They went out of there way in helping us make this shoot possible.

thank you
Bill Bailey

    Hey Gerald - I hope to one day reach your level of gigapixel imagery. Your Dubai image is amazing. And great to meet you face to face in Iceland this year.

    Shot with a 300 mm prime. It took several attempts over 2 weekends. Pentax makes excellent lenses and I used their 645D. thx

    Really like your Vegas panos. How are you (and Gerald) able to get such consistantly sharp images? Is it your lens that makes the biggest difference? Keep up the good work!

    Vegas is always changing and evolving - a must see city for sure.

    I have to plug the Cosmopolitan - not only for the best views in town but for the food (the buffet is one of the best I have ever had), nightlife, pools, staff and management.

    You certainly picked a great location Bill. Fabulous shot, and all the more exciting because I'm going there on holiday in 3 weeks :)
