White Sands National Monument in New Mexico

This image was taken just after sundown in White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo in New Mexico. The lens I used was the manual-focus Kowa 8.5mm F2.8 lens for the Micro Four Thirds format. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with this particular piece of equipment because it gives me mixed results or maybe I just need to adjust to it’s quirks.

I miss New Mexico. I’m back in Utah. I’ll try and update this site more daily before I update my Instagram…
