The landscapist

A funny story (fiction).

I hiked up to the vista only to find another photographer quietly staring at the mountain with his camera set up on his tripod. I left him alone and took a few photographs. When the other photographer noticed me he walked over and struck up a conversation.

“The lights not good. There’s just overcast and no visual interest in the clouds. I’m not sure I’ll even take a photo today” he said.

I nodded and said “I got a few shots in”.

He gave me a crooked smile and asked “you think they’ll be any good in these conditions?”

“They’ll be at least as good as the photo you didn’t take”. I said. Luckily he got the joke and didn’t bludgeon me with his camera.

Sometimes you have to work with the light you have and make the most of it.
