White Sands National Monument
By Deborah Loeb Bohren
White Sands National Monument is an easy three and a half hour drive south of Albuquerque. Part of the National Park Service, White Sands is a surreal landscape of 144,000 acres of rare white gypsum sand dunes that feel more like being on the moon than earth. From blazing sunrises to pastel sunsets to star-studded nights, the dunes are a constantly changing landscape to explore, enjoy and even sled upon.

Today she combines that passion with her love of travel, using her camera to capture the intersection and interplay of light, line and color to create visual stories from the flea markets of Paris to the dunes of Morocco and from Machu Picchu to Havana and beyond.
