Vestiges

Nature and wild landscapes are inexhaustible subjects in photography.

Each place is singular and changes constantly : from one minute, from one hour, from one day, from one season or from one year to the next... Nature surprises us constantly because it is alive, in constant evolution. For plants the evolution is quite fast, but for the minerals the evolution is much slower.

In the Forest of Fontainebleau (located in France in the Paris region), amidst trees and vegetation, lie huge rocks with strange shapes. They are fascinating and seem straight from the sky. Their zoomorphic shapes are incredible. They look like wild animals or imaginary creatures.

A few million years have transformed the sediments present here (from the time when the sea completely covered the landscape) into huge blocks of sandstone that the elements have shaped over time.

Nature has done its work.
