It’s still hard to believe the colors that appear during a sunset at White Sands.  The bright white sand reflects all the hues of the sky, making the entire landscape look surreal and otherworldly as the sun dips below the horizon.  Using the new panoramic camera I finally got an image that captured the entire event from the deep blues and purples of twilight on the left to the explosive yellows and reds of sunset on the right.  Even the silhouetted Organ mountains in the distance took on a unique color.

I was incredibly excited about this image as I watched the sunset happen.  Only one piece of film came out with all the elements that I wanted, as the colors started to fade from the clouds during a second exposure of this scene.  I’m glad it came out perfectly!

Magical Forest - Fuji Provia 100F by Magnus Joensson

Early morning in the magical forest of Norra Kvill, Småland. Hasselblad 500c/m - Zeiss Planar 80mm CF - Fuji Provia 100F Småland, Sweden 2015.10.17

White Sands has some of the most incredible patterns that form in the gypsum dunes.  During my recent trip, there hadn’t been any significant wind for at least a week so clean crests on the dunes were few and far between.  However there were some interesting close up patterns like this because the most recent breeze was from the opposite direction of the typical prevailing winds.

Star trails over my campsite in the Snowy Range of Wyoming.  This was a wonderfully peaceful and calm night where I decided to take an easy one night backpack trip into the wild.  Just before heading to bed, I set up the camera and left the shutter open all night long.
