This was taken at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico in mid September 2015.
After a four hour drive from Albuquerque, NM I had arrived early for a shoot at this famed national monument where they were going to fly balloons the next day (it was cancelled due to wind).
I noticed some cool clouds and some rainfall in the distance so I drove along the road until I saw some mounds of unaltered silica sand to shoot from. I set my tripod up low to the ground, using a Canon 5DSR with a Canon 16-35 lens I wanted to capture not only the texture of the sand but the approaching storm. As the sun set I knew there might be some color due to the break of the clouds between the horizon and the mountains. It colored up very nicely.
My favorite way of displaying this print is how it is done at Images Art Gallery. A double floated metal print. It cost more to do it this way, but it REALLY pops!
