Colour stones

Those who have followed our photographic work with Alexandra for « La princesse au petit pois », might already know where our trip through the US has led us. Yellowstone national park is one of these places of absolute beauty that outreaches dreams and expectations. Of course, I had seen spectacular images of the park’s colourful hot springs and geysers, of course I knew about wildlife everywhere, but from the very first minute we entered the park, with its every corner filled with jewels, whether spectacular or discrete, it has been a breathtaking wonderment. From the surprisingly warm water of a bright green clear water creek to the steamy wind carrying sulphur scents that comes in wrapping bursts, from bison herds gathering at sunset in the majestic Hayden valley, to the still silence of remote hidden lakes or the warmth of black basalt beaches, on the first night there I couldn’t sleep haunted by too much beauty.

We were also blessed to travel with our dearest friends Elena, Konstantin and Maxim and share with them these precious moments.

While it was obvious that any photographic attempt was pointless, of course, stupidly, I took even more photos than usual. With the result that I still don’t know how to handle these in a somewhat structured manner, and probably will bore you here with endless series.

  1. Exactly what I needed right now, dear Amélie! Natural, subdued colours which, somehow, many to knock you sideways too. Whilst on the beach in Brittany this summer my mother, an artist, was gathering stones, shells and exclaiming about the beauty of the myriads of colours present in one stone. I'll admit, I couldn't quite see them at first but, like the starry sky at night, the more you gaze, the more you see.

    Thank you for this beauty, Amélie!


  2. Oh dear, I'm so sorry! I meant to write: 'which manage to knock you sideways too'.

  3. So, so beautiful! I have been to the park twice and it is an amazing place. I don't think you could be boring, even if you tried. XO'S

  4. C'est spectaculaire ! Tu me donnes envie de découvrir cet endroit. Et tes photos sont saisissantes ! Comme je le disais à Alexandra, tu es une artiste !!

  5. Nous ennuyer ? ma chère Amélie, mais montre nous tes séries, encore et encore, à l'infini !!!

  6. Comment la beauté pourrait-elle être ennuyeuse?
    Cette matière dans tes images est tout simplement sublime.
    Donne envie de retourner à l'argentique...
