Laurent Baig – The Wild Light

RMNP (NPN) 3rd place for “Road 7 Surprise”

Filed under: Colorado, Photography — Tags: , , , — Laurent @ 8:21 pm

Fall color, Sneffels Range, Colorado

We were driving around and bouncing along looking to see what might be photogenic or at least worthy of a photograph when we pulled around a corner and saw this scene…along with about 50 other photographers.  What the hell, you can’t not take a picture just because 1000s of others have done the same.  I’m really glad I did, because this slide is amazing! I should also add, this image would not have been made without the generosity of information by some wonderful photographers that I’ve met via this site. First time to an area is unlikely to land an image like this without a priori knowlegde. Thanks to everyone I met up in Colorado.

I’m also deeply humbled and honored that the voters for the RMNP fall color competition picked this image for third place (anonymously).  Cheers, everyone!
