Broad Light
Photo By Paul Smithson Phillips

  • Title: Broad Light
  • State/Province/Region: New Mexico
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: White Sands National Mounument
  • Nearest Town: White Sands New Mexico
  • Brief Directions: Off White Sands National Monument's main road
  • Notes: This shot goes with short light.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Taken at dusk at white sands. I used the same subject and approximate location as a picture I submitted entitled "short Light"taken of the same subject but at dawn. I wanted the broad light across the ripples. White Sands sand dunes offer short lighted ripples in the morning and broad light in the afternoon. Do to the prevailing winds in the northern hemisphere a lot of in land sand dunes, of course not all, have the slip side, steep side, on it's eastern flank.The same goes with the ripples but at a smaller scale. This makes for broad light in the late afternoon and short light in the morning. They each create their own feel.
  • Gear: Canon 7D, Canon 16-35mm 2.8L II , Manfrotto tripod, Hoya polarizor

    Thank you kindly Laura! I'm sorry for not responding sooner, as it's hard to get to a computer right now. I always enjoy the Spring with wonderful colors. I look forward to sharing some new Spring...

    Holly Molly that is just beautiful. That needs to be on the cover of OP magazine. Probably the most awesome image I have seen on here to date.
