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.
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.
