Golden Waters, Colorado River

It’s been hard to get out to photograph lately.  In fact, down right impossible.  But with any luck I’ll be waking up early to go out to Organ Pipe tomorrow morning.

This is an image of the Colorado river near Lee’s Ferry.  The morning sun was intense on the Navajo sandstone walls that rose majestically above the river.  The trail of rocks in the shallow water created what I thought was a really cool pattern and made for a texturally interesting image.  This is one of those images that isn’t really about anything except the light and what I found interesting about diversions of water and the laws of fluid dynamics.

You are reading a blog posting from the photographer Laurent Baig. Feel the wilderness experience.


  1. Very nice image. At first I wasn’t entirely sure about the balance of the composition, but it’s grown on me over time. You must come across some really amazing reflected light in the canyons you have in Arizona. I find instances of it where I live as well, but the scale is obviously dramatically different. In any case, it makes for some great photography.

    • Thanks, Joel. To be honest, I thought for a long time that it was too silly of an image. But something kept me from hitting delete on this one, and I’m glad I didn’t.
