White Sands |

In October we were visiting some friends in Las Cruces, and drove out to White Sands National Monument, which is quite possibly the most surreal place I’ve ever been.

I took all of these with my polarizing filter, which is basically a necessity there, because there’s so much glare from the sand. I also took a 360-degree panorama which turned out really cool. You should download it and look at the full version — the details are really amazing!
