Just Leaves

Fall colors, San Juans, Colorado

I guess it’s been a while since I’ve made a post.  I could say I’ve been busy. I’d be lying.  I’ve just been unmotivated. Why?  Leg injury and a windy desert.  I get tired of the wind and I get tired of it blowing all the freaking time, which it seems like it does here in Tucson.  I have another excuse.  My scanner broke.  It’s hard to get motivated to go make images when you can’t share them.  At least, it’s hard for me.  I like to share.  I like to show people the beauty of the earth – at least, I like to show it the way I see it.  So my scanner’s been broke, I got a bum hamstring, and it’s been freaking windy.

Well, I got the scanner fixed, my leg is getting better, the wind hasn’t died, but I made a scan and decided it’s time to get going again.  This image is from last fall. I was wandering around the San Juans on a lovely cool morning and this warm light was filtering through the aspen leaves and softly lighting this patch on the ground.  I was completely captivated.

Mono Lake

Mono Lake, Dawn

Last June/July I went to Lee Vining to take  a digital printing workshop with Charles Cramer.  While there, I tried to take advantage of the location and photograph mono lake in my own way.  Only problem was the fires in the sierra nevada.  The smoke was making the air quality pretty bad at times.  Still, patience is a virtue, and you just never know what’s going to happen.  So, I wake up two mornings in a row, come down to the lake and try to scope out a photograph.  I do, and I’m glad I did, because even if no color happened at all in the sky, it was still a beautiful place to be.
