Solitude

Solitude


This scene was captured among the surreal landscape of White Sands National Monument in Southern New Mexico. These white gypsum dunes are bright white, and commonly framed with clear blue skies. They get alarmingly hot and, covering several hundred square miles, can feel eerily desolate. The Yucca plant is one of the few forms of life to survive here, and its existence seems in utter defiance of its environment.
