Congratulations to Ross Martin for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 7 votes - View Previous Winners


En route to White Sands National Park on Wednesday I was concerned about the forecast for high winds up to 35mph, and as I approached the park still 30 miles away I could see the sky filled with a large cloud-like plume on the far horizon from the blowing sand. The air was definitely stirred up when I arrived so I wore a facemask before setting out on the dunes hike. Once again Im taught the lesson that bad weather conditions usually makes for great photographic opportunity. The softened contrast and glowing light made it a joy to shoot. Hope you enjoy the images!

Cheers,
Ross

The colors are incredible on your images!

Perhaps a mantra for photographers would be to paraphrase Dickens, "It was the worst of times, it was the best of times."

Nice stuff! That gypsum "sand" is evil, getting blasted by it ain't fun!

Fantastic shots. Do you worry about blowing sand damaging a lens?
