White Sands National Monument never ceases to amaze me. Whether lit at sunrise, midday or at sunset its not hard to see the unique and beautiful qualities of the white gypsum sand. This particular photo was taken early in my trip. It should be of no surprise that the textures and patterns of the sand were of particular interest, but I was also drawn to this composition to contrast the unique white sand to the deep blue sky above.
