He says, “I was just looking for endless horizons and landscapes. I’ve always considered my choices like a gambler’s lucky streak and I’ve not been disappointed yet. This territory is amazing, huge and ever changing. There are mountains, plains, deserts with panoramas that take your breath away. Same as in Africa, when you are there, you may feel that you are the only human being in the world.“1140-crater-lake-national-park-oregon-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 9184-monument-valley-arizona-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 8925-monument-valley-national-park-arizona-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 8860-in-tribute-to-ansel-adams-snake-river-grand-teton-national-park-wyoming-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 8474-buffalos-of-grand-teton-np-wyoming-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 7355-antelope-canyon-arizona-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 6310-lamar-river-yellowstone-national-park-wyoming-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 4611-grand-canyon-national-park-arizona-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 4239-grand-canyon-arizona-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 3691-artist-paint-pots-death-valley-national-park-usa-2014-laurent-baheux-copie 3608-zabriskie-point-death-valley-national-park-california-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 2873-half-dome-yosemite-national-park-california-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 2328-half-dome-yosemite-national-park-california-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 2028-upper-falls-yellowstone-national-park-wyoming-usa-2014-laurent-baheux 1221-grand-prismatic-yellowstone-national-park-wyoming-usa-2014-laurent-baheux PF27-Baheux-America couv170914.indd
