It’s been too long since my last visit to White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. White Sands is one of my favorite locations to explore and photograph. Next week I’m happy to finally return to this amazing location. If all goes to plan I’ll be concluding a personal project here and exploring other photogenic locations else where in the state.
The photograph “Passing Storm” (above) was taken as a monsoon was in the process of clearing. The gypsum sand took on a look and texture I had never seen before due to an overnight rain. The dramatic clouds and lighting were a real treat to witness on this morning. As soon as the rain clouds came, they vanished. Any moisture left on the ground quickly evaporated in the warm desert air.
