White Sands National Monument, New Mexico 1996

With the comment from yesterday's White Sands image -- "...are frickin Ansel Adams type photos." -- I thought maybe one more would be appropriate. A techie note: the technical aspects of how I get this sort of result from the all white place is not for everyday shooting. It needs to be reserved for those image that have a limited tonal scale -- no more than 1.5-2 stops from darkest to lightest -- that you want to see as a full scaled print. And, no, it doesn't always work for me (or anyone else), but when it does, it's achieves image with tonal values you can't get any other way.

You met Ansel Adams!! Whoa!
I'm using your photos as my desktop background!
I love B&W photos. I'm looking into the Rebel myself. I put you down as one of my links. I can look at great photos everyday. I was really into photography years ago and I've been getting the itch again. Mostly I take color with a Canon Digital point and shoot, but it's really time to upgrade to a digital SLR!
