Laurent Baig – The Wild Light

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.
