juniper, vermillion cliffs wilderness, arizona

I spent a couple days in the Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness with Harley Goldman over Christmas.  I was a little plussed when the red rock I expected was practically nowhere to be found and there was this crazy amount of this strange white stuff everywhere.  It gave me big pause while I had to get used to thinking in a different way.  I was thinking of finding patches of reflected light.  Well, there was reflected light, but most if it was reflecting off the snow!

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



  1. Laurent, I like the light on the tree with the contrasting shadow background. Steve

  4. Hi Laurent,the background in this photograph tells the story about this juniper well, thanks to your skillful composition. Sometimes using “the lack of the light” can work well to define the subject …requires shift in the thinking process
