Sand Dunes After Sunset, White Sands National Monument, New Mexico:<br />
Too many photographers believe that photography stops when the sun goes down.  I took this long exposure image well after the sun had gone down as Danielle and I were hiking back to the car.  The white sand of the Monument continued to be illuminated by the twilight sky just enough to allow the shot.

Storm Over Sand Dunes, White Sands National Monument, New Mexico:
Summer storms in the desert are wonderful phenomena to photograph. My daughter, Danielle, and I watched this storm from a distance and captured this image before we had to leave to avoid the rainy effect of this scene. The dark clouds rendered the sand dunes in this image more like waives on a turbulent ocean. As we hiked back to our car, I noticed Danielle’s hair standing on end due to the lightning activity from the storm. Without telling her why, we quickly hiked through the valleys of the dunes and safely away from the storm.
