White Sands : Second Sunrise
Fall 2006 Steven Noyes

White Sands : Second Sunrise

White Sands, NM view map

This shot is an extreme example of "warm/ Cold" colors. There is a small band of very warm colors for the approaching sunrise offset by a very cold image overall. The White sand has taken on a dep blue as it reflects the color of the early morning sky.

other sizes: small medium large original

Fantastic shot amongst a great album - I am looking to pick up a secondhand Canon 5D and this is the type of photo that could sell me on it.

Wow. Great composition and of course exposure control. I love the soft shadow around the base of the shrub, and the fine strands rising up against the blue water. V

Awesome... Everything has been said below. Love the foreground interest, shape of the water leading you in to the image and the warm-cool contrast. Top image. Big Vote!
Guest 06-Jan-2007 06:40
Steven, I would have to say that this is my favorite of your White Sands shots. The intense blue contrasting with the warmth of the coming sunrise is great. Love the lines and the use of foreground anchor.

Extra fine texture of sands with attractive light on the sky.
Good composition and saturation of colour.
Merry X'mas to you, Steven.

Perfection! Amazing natural flowing forms. Incredible light and exposure. Vote.
Stacy Egan21-Nov-2006 19:35
This is my favorite of an outstanding gallery. I love the shapes and curves, the subtle textures, and the blue colors (with just enough warm color in the horizon to balance the blues). I hope to make it to this place some day.
Gordon W21-Nov-2006 14:57
