Winter Light at Twin Harbors State Park

In January, I took a weekend trip to Twin Harbors State Park. Absolutely beautiful, empty salt flats and coast line.

Morning Clouds over Great Sand Dunes

Over the summer, I drove through southwestern Colorado after a few weeks of research in Boulder. I passed by Great Sand Dunes National Park as a rainstorm rolled through the region. After camping nearby, I walked around the dunes in the morning to photograph the line of clouds advancing across the deep blue sky. The clouds projected moving pools of shadows across the mounds of shifting sand.

Coral Pink Sand Dunes

This spring, I visited Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park for the first time. Unfortunately for my photography, the state allows vehicles onto the sand, so dune buggy tracks erased most of the ripples that I like to photograph. However, I still managed to find a dune or two that had mostly uninterrupted striations.

Between the Dunes at White Sands

I stopped for a quick walk around the dunes at White Sands National Monument last spring on my way back to Tucson from New Mexico. Here is a panorama of the bushes between the dunes.
