The splendid wonder of the Valley of Fire Nevada State Park is like walking on Mars, here on Earth. The moment one enters past the park ranger building, an entire world of red rock is laid out as far as one can see. I have visited several times over the years, as it is a 45-minute drive from Las Vegas.

So it was exciting to see Apple’s newest ‘Shot on iPhone’ video, “A Journey into the Valley of Fire,” video featuring the NV State Park. As the other videos have shown off the capabilities of iPhones of years past, this one features what the iPhone 11 Pro’s 4K video and Ultra-Wide camera can do.

I could not have written a better opening shot for Apple’s video, “Fifty miles from Las Vegas, lie the remains of a monumental geological process, sculpted by 200 million years of wind and water. An ocean of rock, a valley of fire.” Exactly, and the VoF park has been used as a backdrop for multiple blockbuster movies like Transformers.

An iPhone 11 Pro was used to shoot a series of sweeping scenes of the iconic sandstone geological formations, in the Valley of Fire Nevada State Park. Holly Herdon’s song “Frontier” was selected as its theme song.

“Shot on iPhone” video series shows off photography and video capabilities of Apple’s current flagship iPhone.

After seeing it a few times, I am even more motivated now to utilize my iPhone 11 Pro Max in midnight green, to create compelling videos.
