Most of us have an image that "defines" your beginning in photography, this is the one that defined me. Even though I was already photographing before this day, when I took this image - luck played a great part of it because you cannot predict that those conditions would be so perfect and I was "there" at the right time - I did strengthen my love for photography and never looked back. Some of you have seen it, some have not...

"This is a long exposure on White Sands National Monument at dusk with a huge lighting storm at the far horizon. Many people think this is snow (it was about 90F that day...) but the sand is so white that it truly looks like snow." (2 ND combined, 180 seconds exposure). As always, thank you so much for your support and feedback! :)
