New Nature Photograph: Dune Arcs

Fine Art Landscape Photograph: Dune Arcs by Nat Coalson

White Sands National Monument is one of my all-time favourite places for nature and landscape photography. I’ve been there many times and photographed in widely varying conditions, so I have a vast assortment of photographs, each with a different character.

This is one of my favourite images I’ve ever made. But in truth, I’d almost forgotten about it until I was recently preparing a presentation for a local camera club on ‘Mountains & Deserts of the Western USA.’

This shows the brilliant white gypsum sands against the clear blue sky. If you look close, you can just make out the fine ripples in the sand.

When I rediscovered this photograph I spent some time evaluating it and did some slight re-processing. A little tweak to the crop brings out the strong shapes of the curves and half-ellipse of the dune face, and I fine-tuned the colour to faithfully represent what it looked like when I made the image.

I love this photograph mainly because of its simplicity. It’s almost abstract, but gives clues as to its true subject. I also love the way the lines flow horizontally across the image, emanating from the main focal point, and the monochrome rendition in shades of blue (although this is a straight colour image!).

I can’t wait to print this (huge, of course!). As with all my work, you can order a custom print, made by yours truly and hand signed. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss an order.
