    Reported by:

    This past weekend, I camped overnight at White Sands National Monument for the first time. The back country site I was assigned was almost a mile in and I had about 60 pounds worth of camera gear, food, and camping gear on my back. About half way to my site, a single, pristine dune caught my eye. I couldn't pass on the photo opportunity, so I had to throw all of my gear off my back, pull out my camera, pull out my 70-200, and shoot my new favorite black & white photo. Success.

    This is so beautiful Aaron. I love the lines and textures created in sand dunes. My eye peacefully moves through your frame, this moment feels so quiet, and I love it. Well done.
