White Sands National Monument is really like visiting another world in some ways. The dunes look like sand at certain angles and in certain light, but once you get close or touch them it gets a little confusing. My wife and I took the opportunity to camp in the backcountry of these dunes and we actually found some areas with no footprints! Most of the time I shoot during 'magic hour' around sunrise or sunset, but the white sand contrasted well with the deep blue sky in late afternoon as shadows were cast by the foliage and the little wavy dunes.
