White Sands Road Trip 2011

November 3rd, 2011 in Landscape, Nature & Wildlife, Photography

White Sands, New Mexico seems to call me out every October, thus another road trip.  This year I finally got to camp-out in the dunes.  Despite wind, blowing sand, a little rain and a couple of lightning bolts, the experience was phenomenal and worth the trouble.  This was also the first time to do some serious star photography and I think the results are stellar (sorry, sometimes I just can’t help myself). My old Canon 5D was not up to the task so I rented a new 5D Mark II that has much better high ISO performance and along with a f2.8 24-70mm lens was able to finally get some results I am happy with.  Please check out all of the images in the”Special Places”Whites Sands 2011 Gallery.  Enjoy!
