White Sands 32026

An 8x10 photographer checking out a scene

The photographer shown here was actually hauling the ultimate camera around the dunes,
an 8x10 sheet film camera that along with its tripod weighs 45 pounds!
Plus he was carrying a large camera bag that I didn't have courage to ask how heavy
that was. Oh to be young again. Very nice fellow.

Photographed at the White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, New Mexico USA.

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS
1/500s f/9.0 at 85.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Really like the way the side-light brings out the footprints.

I love the composition and lighting. Looks like it could be a book jacket. Voted.
