- Description: Why I picked this as my favorite for 2013.
I'm in love with the color. These shades of Autumn's last hurrah, the golds, siennas, ochres and umbers in a delicately stippled watercolor scene. It was early morning and I was in a hurry to make Navajo Falls as the steam off the warm waterfalls were colliding with the very crisp Autumn morning air and I wanted to capture that steamy, floating mist coming off the spectacular falls before it warmed up.
The image conveys a sense of "going home". An adventure taken, spectacular landscapes surrounding warm and inviting colors of a season's end. Life happening. Something I can relate to quite personally. Adding the human element in my landscapes was a new, fun and exciting direction this year. The trees and foliage lean one way and the backpackers lean the other and it seems to create a sense of contrast and movement.
When I see this image, I'm instantly back there. The cold crisp air, the smell, the sounds the soft sandy ground and sense that you are far from home. Emotionally, it was a sense of completion. I'd wanted to see Havasupai colored with Autumn for a long time.
