Travel plans in 2020 did not hold up very well, and New Mexico was one trip for my wife and me that was a casualty. We finally got around to making new plans for the spring of 2022, and a prime target of interest was White Sands National Park. We booked a rental house in nearby Alamogordo for a week of our five-week trip.
From our lodging, I went into the park over several days and found many great sand dunes to shoot. I had read some photography guidance that the park is better in the afternoon than the evening, but I found the mornings to be good and not as hot. Every day I visited, I went out in a different location or direction to see what variety of subjects and compositions I could find.
I often looked for some large sweep of a dune with distant mountains, but there were other scenes as well. This is one that was more localized, with the contrast of two small yucca plants against the sand.
