Photo of The Day 11/6/2012

White Sands Moon by Suzanne Mathia

The desert landscapes of the American Southwest are fertile ground for nature photographers. Suzanne Mathia submitted today’s Photo Of The Day to the Your Favorite Places gallery. Mathia took the photo in White Sands National Monument, New Mexico. She poetically writes about the scene, “These brilliant white gypsum dunes are ever changing – growing and cresting like a relentless tide Always advancing, changing shape and reflecting the colors of every ray of light and movement of the clouds.”
