On our last day in White Sands National Monument we decided to try some creative shooting. I waited until the last light of the sun was falling on these grasses to some subtle create tonal contrast.
This photograph is all about timing and composition. You can only take a shot like this late in the evening or early in the morning – when sun is close to the horizon. I composed this shot so that the light was only falling on the grasses. All other areas in the frame were completely in shade.
