Close Encounters of the Massive Kind!

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

Dr. Carl Sagan


One look at the moonless sky from White Sands National Monument is all it takes to know that Sagan was dead on with that quote!!!


This shot was taken last night on top of one of the sand dunes in the middle of White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, New Mexico. It was one of the last shots of the evening and tuned out to be the best shot of the evening as far as I am concerned anyway. ;-) I wonder what it would take to do a little light painting among the stars!? ;-)


White Sands is a MUST visit if you ever get the chance! :-) MORE than worth a few hours drive out of the way!


And you SERIOUSLY need to hit the "L" key on your keyboard! ;-)
