Lost in White Sands National Monument | Steven Dempsey

Living life on the road has afforded me experiences I would never have had otherwise. My wife and I began our journey from Seattle through Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Our adventures continued through Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana. Each of these states has been unique and a few places have left an indelible mark on me. The Grand Canyon was one and so was my recent trip to White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. As a photographer, this is like a child’s playground. It’s akin to being in the Sahara only the sand is a beautiful and pure white. Visually it’s what would happen if you mixed snow and sand together. I had been here a few times before so I knew what to expect and I was really excited to take my trusty X-T1 with me to capture the magic. On this day, I planned two trips; sunrise and sunset. The park doesn’t open till 7am and the sun rose at 6am so it wasn’t exactly a sunrise shoot but I was more concerned with capturing the angle of the low light on the sand ripples…….
