It was my first time in White Sand Dunes Monument, New Mexico (USA) last January. I arrived in time for the sunset and decided to wander around to get to know the place and choose spots to photograph along the week. I did not expect much for the first...

Devils Beauty


Devils Beauty

I tried to capture a little different perspective of Devils Tower, something I haven't seen before. I saw that if I got the camera low enough I could capture the still rising sun. I know that sun flare is frowned upon, but I love what it does in this...
