Alan Barrett Images | The Bigger Picture | White Sands NM in cloud

I have posted two other portfolios of this wonderful national monument in New Mexico.

The images in this portfolio were taken over several days when the region experienced almost complete cloud cover, with only occasional glimpses of the sun. The resultant filtered light turned the normally white gypsum sand varying shades of yellow through orange - but the real rewards for some quite depressing hiking conditions were the wonderful skies that were paraded throughout my visit, to produce an unusual interpretation of this lovely park.
