    At White Sands NM. On a trip back in Dec '08, met up with Jim and Allen Maestas for a couple days out on the dunes. These are just before and just after sun-up on the second day.
    The fee for early entrance to the park is worth it if you want to get the dawn light, the best of the day in my opinion!
    Hope you enjoy and any comments are welcome.

    I like both of these - the first for its minimalist perspective on the start of the day and the second for almost mimicking an alarm clock on the scene in the first one :)

    That was a fun trip Barry. You dug up a few more fun memories here. I like both, but especially the first one.

    On both of these the foreground sand pattern is almost hypnotizing, love the first with that steep drop!

    That second one kind of reminds me of some shots from StarWars

    Both are superb but #1, with it's mixture of warm and cool lighting is special.
