Today we’re going to take a look at the more serious side of White Sands National Monument. Unfortunately, I was not there during optimum lighting. That occurs not in the bright overhead sun, but rather closer to either sunrise or sunset. Proper exposure is tricky with a landscape this white, as we’ve discussed before, so most images were taken with a +⅔ exposure compensation. Even so, some post processing was required, and thankfully I had shot images in Raw + JPEG.
