An artificial volcano along the Strip that "erupts" nightly from 8 pm–midnight on the hour. After sister property Bellagio opened, the design firm WET Enterprises improved the technology behind the volcano effect to make it more spectacular in 1996. To avoid the smell of uncombusted natural gas odorant, the mercaptan is stripped from the natural gas and a pina colada fragrance is added to the natural gas stream. (From Wikipedia)

You have not to go around the world, you can find everything in Vegas: lakes, mountains, monuments, volcanoes and famous buildings. Very nice shot and informative note

A slug of fire! At least, the right half looks like the head of a slug to me. I like the POV. Good job under difficult light.
