Imagine an expanse of pure whiteness that stretches beyond the horizon and within this whimsical space imagine only incredible silence and the warm gaze of the Sun wholly complimenting the brisk, cold wisp of wind that flirts with your face…imagine such a marvelous thing and you will quickly begin to understand the awe this stunning place inspires. This is perhaps one of the very many beguiling experiences White Sands National Monument imparts on whosoever is fortunate to visit.
Located in New Mexico, the natural wonder covers over 270 square miles of desert creating the worlds’ largest gypsum dune-field and it supports countless plant and animal wildlife. A cherished trip, visiting this gleaming white wonder will surely enliven your inner explorer…and to truly absorb and capture the subtleties of the sparkle and ripples of the sand hike deep into the dunes and you will also discover breathtaking trackless vistas.
As I am convinced we are all flaneurs at heart, of urban landscapes and natural wonders, I promise it is impossible to resist the charms of this place. Succumbing to the splendor of this sandy marvel was captured on camera in the last two images.
With love and safe tidings,
