Headlight obstructed by front bag

My headlight is obstructed by my handlebar bag. Is there any way to elevate the light up above the bag?

or you can mount the light somewhere else, using these paul mounts for example, or you can use this to put a light just about anywhere. Be creative.

I assume you mean a handlebar-mounted light being obstructed by a handlebar bag. In that case, you might consider something like the Topeak Bar Xtender.
