This is what it looks like sometimes at White Sands National Monument in southern New Mexico: Sand-covered roadways blending into blindingly white gypsum dunes, blue mountains in the distance, and clear blue skies. It's like Nature at its plainest and most elemental--basic colors that could have come straight out of the 8-crayon Crayola box, no fancy blends.
Of course, if you hang around at sunrise or sunset, you see a whole different scene and the kind of colors found only in the 64-crayon Crayola box, the one we always wanted and seldom got when we were kids.
On the day I went to White Sands, the whites were so white and the sun was so strong that the tears ran down my cheeks and I could hardly open my eyes.
Those people in the distance were sledding on the dunes, by the way. They obviously had better sunglasses than mine!
Just for fun, I played a bit with the color. I wish I had some sunglasses that would do this.
For all kinds of skies in all kinds of colors, go to Skywatch.
