Piece description from the artist
This photograph is a long exposure taken on White Sands National Monument at dusk, with a huge lighting storm happening on the far horizon. At first glance the brilliant white sand looks like snow, but it was in fact around 90 degrees fahrenheit the day the photograph was taken.

As an artist, Danilo's mission is to provide edgy, sophisticated, and artistic images, and he is committed to creating a dynamic, unique and modern look with digital photography.

Some of his favorite locations include Arizona, Utah, Colorado, California, New Mexico, Brazil, and New York.
