Desert sand dunes

Sand dunes. White sand dunes in the Tularosa Basin at the northern end of the Chihuahuan Desert. This area is the largest gypsum sand dune field in the world. These white dunes have engulfed over 700 square kilometres of desert. The gypsum (hydrated calcium sulphate) crystallised from the water of an ancient lake as it gradually evaporated. Photographed at the White Sands National Monument, New Mexico, USA

Arid Desert Landscape Dunes Gypsum New Mexico Us A White Sands National Monument Chihuahuan Desert


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the mesmerizing beauty of the desert sand dunes at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, USA. Stretching across the Tularosa Basin, these magnificent white sand dunes form the largest gypsum sand dune field on Earth. With over 700 square kilometers engulfed by these pristine dunes, it is a sight to behold. The origin of this surreal landscape can be traced back to an ancient lake that gradually evaporated, leaving behind hydrated calcium sulphate or gypsum crystals. The crystallization process resulted in the formation of these stunning white sands that glisten under the scorching sun. In this photograph captured by Science Photo Library, we are transported to a world where aridness and serenity coexist harmoniously. The vast expanse of undulating dunes creates a sense of tranquility amidst nature's raw power. As we gaze upon this image, we cannot help but marvel at the sheer grandeur and uniqueness of our planet's geography. It serves as a reminder that even in seemingly inhospitable environments like deserts, life finds its way to thrive and create breathtaking landscapes. Let this photograph transport you to an awe-inspiring realm where dry winds sculpt towering formations out of fine grains of sand – a testament to both time's passage and nature's artistic prowess.
