For this collection of fine art prints in my "Lights and Colors" style and in my "Around the World" theme, I chose a lesser-known region of Nevada, the "Valley of Fire".
The Valley of Fire is a little piece of paradise located in the state of Nevada, in the United States.
Each year, I take two or three days to recharge my batteries among these intricate mineral formations hidden within the Mojave Desert.
Whenever I visit to "Valley of Fire", I always feel the same excitement. Indeed, although my reason for the visit is to take photos, I still take the time to relax and enjoy the incredible surroundings.
There is only one road that leads to Valley of Fire. It winds through a rocky desert which is not interesting for a photographer. The landscapes are barren, studded with a few trees, a few yuccas and a few cacti. The colors are rather dull.
I get a thrill of joy when I near the exit of a hairpin bend located about a kilometer (0.62 mile) away from the "Valley of Fire". Just before coming out of the bend, I stop to climb on a small butte which offers me a magnificent sight of this red and orange mineral landscape. It is just a little moment of incomparable ecstasy.
Each time I survey this rustic spectacle, I feel the same surprise and the same joy as I did the first time I looked upon it. How could this little sandstone paradise with such warm colors have emerged out of this barren desert where everything is dull? The Valley of Fire is like a lantern that sparkles against a blank wall. dull. It is an amazing feeling. Each year, I am in awe with the same thrill of enthusiasm.
The "Valley of Fire" consists entirely of rocks and sand. When I walk around looking for an excellent point of view, I only hear the silence. Nothing resonates against the rocky formations.
As far as the eye can see, there are only rocks, and a few shrubs. The "Valley of Fire" is one of those places in the world where I understand the meaning of calmness, solitude, tranquility, and serenity.
When I walk in this totally preserved natural site which is rarely visited by living beings, I feel the same awe that is present at the Pink Granite Coast in the north of Brittany in France. It is as if the rocks radiate positive energizing waves. I feel as like I am reborn and rejuvenated simply by gazing at such a sight.
In this collection of color fine art prints, I wanted to depict the beauty and the fullness that one experiences in this place. The shapes, the colors, and the skies are unique. One may feel that they are present at the dawn of creation, when the world was uninhabited.
I created this collection in a panoramic format with a 3:1 ratio. The definition of each photograph reaches 150 mega pixels. The prints can be very large.
