I Accidentally rejected two comments to this picture. This blog is being spammed a lot recently and I'm apparently challenged when choosing between the 'reject' and the 'publish' button.
So to answer Carlos question: It's big! :-)
Here is a copy and paste from Wikipedia: 710-km² (275-mi²)
Parts of this area are not accessible for the public and used by the military for missile testing.

WOW! That's an incredible shot. Nice capture!

did you bring the gas mask and oxygen? :)

I like the texture of the sand most, as you said, it looks best without human footprints :)

Fang Xu said...

BTW, blogger doesn't provide CAPTCHA for leaving comments?

Oliver said...

Thanks Elisabeth, could be as well just be a shot of an incredible place :)

What's CAPTCHA?

Fang Xu said...

the verification program that asks you to type in characters shown in a pic :)

Oliver said...

Oh yeah it has that. I should try it. But some spam is so well done, it looks like it is done by manually.

Awesome photo!

Wow! What an odd place! I love the sparkles in the sand and the clear blue sky!

Actually, I can't say what's more peculiar, the place or seeing this sort of shot on your blog. Maybe that's because of the daylight. :-)

I like it a lot and I even think it's more impressive than an Ansel Adams picture I saw the other day of some sort of cactus or something...

Oliver said...

Makes me wonder whether or not Adams knew about White Sands.

Carlos said...

Thanks for answering the deleted question.
Enjoy the sun.

Oliver said...

Rather cold. Do you see the glitter? It was a bit frosty.
