Over the Hill and Far Away

Some times a slide comes back and I think to myself, this is why I photograph.  Those fleeting moments of magic that I was there, that I saw, that I paid attention to.  It seems the more you do this photography thing, the better you get.  At least, better in terms of discrimination of quality of light.  It’s a practice.  You might get good quickly, you might get good slowly – it really doesn’t matter.  The important thing is to pay attention to where you are, don’t worry about that magic image.  Pay attention, immerse your observation into your local reality.  Then, if you feel so inclined, you trip the shutter. I must have stood here with Harley Goldman for 45-50 minutes while the wind whipped around us in a frenzy and we just watched as the clouds rolled by playing the shadow dance on the landscape.  This is the only image during those many moments.

You are reading a blog posting from the photographer Laurent Baig. Feel the wilderness experience.



  1. I don’t know why, but this looks so much better than what I saw posted on NPN. There’s so much depth here. This would be awesome really large.

    • Thanks, Dan! I agree, I think this image would look nice really large.

  2. Gorgeous image, as is the one in the last post. I’m taken by the sensitive composition here, and the light is of course, spectacular.
