White Sands National Monument is one of the most beautiful places on earth. In direct sunlight the sand is as white as snow and is surprisingly cool to the touch. About ten miles from Alomogordo, New Mexico, the dunes are so quiet that you can hear yourself breathe. Listen closely and you can hear you heart beat.
I took these photos in 2002, 2003 and have just reworked them for high resolution monitors that are now commonplace. This is the first of several galleries that I will be moving permanently to WordPress from my photo site at cecfoto.com. If you haven’t already seen these photos, I hope you enjoy them.
