Explore - #250 - January 29, 2010.

 

This the reason for my January trip to south central New Mexico. I had timed it to coincide with the rise of a full moon. Oddly enough, there was about two inches of snow in Alamogordo, NW, where we were staying overnight. However, the morning broke with just scattered clouds. We spent the better part of the day shooting the fantastic dunes at White Sands National Monument, took a break in the late afternoon, then came back for the moon rise. It doesn't get any better than this...

White Sands National Monument, near Alamogordo, New Mexico, consist of white gypsum or selenite sand dunes and forms part of the 270 square mile Chihuahuan desert. 19 years ago i was there, it was time for visiting the area again.

The problem here is, finding parts were no people walked to avoid footsteps and shooting the Soaptree Yucca's under best light and angle. After some searching in the area we found some in perfect harmony.

This is sunset, which was much better than i expected. White Sands is all about light, when light is gone you can pack your gear and leave.

Enjoy...
