Description

My trip to White Sands was planned for the timing of the full moon in November, but the clouds in the air had different plans, covering it up so moonlit photographs were not possible at night. In fact, the clouds hung on the horizon, blocking sunrise and sunset, most of the time I was there. So I did what I tell beginning landscape photographers to do, “make the best out of what nature provides for you.” Even the few plants that grow in this rather stark and open space understand they must share their territory with the white gypsum sands that shift and change in the wind at White Sands National Monument. White Sands First Light is about that tenacity and will – not only to survive, but to thrive.
