Harvest Colors In Havasupai
Photo By Valerie Millett

  • Title: Harvest Colors In Havasupai
  • State/Province/Region: Arizona
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Grand Canyon
  • Nearest Town: Supai
  • 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.

    Thank you kindly Manda! I thought you might also enjoy this image of Yosemite in Fall. It's a great time of year there. I look forward to a few trips there this season!

    Thanks Laura! It's up in the area you also enjoy visiting/photographing, there in the Eastern Sierras! I can't wait for a few more weeks to go start chasing the Fall colors! I look forward to...
