    This is beautiful Terence. I love the limited DOF with focus on the Yucca and the brilliant white sand dunes in the background. The sand is so beautiful.

  • Thanks, Sharon. I had passed near White Sands National Monument many many times on the belief that there would be too little contrast among bare white dunes to be photographically interesting. I was unaware it was vegetated and found out differently. I have already returned to shoot yuccas and white sands at sunset.

    Fantastic capture Terence, very well done, not so easy to find the right exposure with this mostly white background! Many congratulations on your well deserved features!

  • Thanks, Detlef, my friend. I took many a picture there and some did not turn out too well. Of course, you’ll never see one of those! ;)
