This was from yesterday’s sunrise hike. Howling winds and blowing snow create some unbelievable light on the side of Flattop Mountain. There’s something amazing about photographing in these conditions, with winds over 40mph and temps hovering right around 0°F.

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.
