Often we miss the beauty of small details by going too fast. On our way, true wonders go unnoticed; we cannot even perceive them because we are going around the world in a hurry, with no time.
Michael Turtle is capable of doing exactly the opposite, walking slow and look at every tiny detail to enjoy it and share it with other people.
During his stay in the Pyrenees, he decided to ride a bike around the Natural Park of Volcanic Zone of the Garrotxa, to not miss a single element of nature and the colourful landscape around.
“The gentle hum of the bike’s electric motor and the whishing of the turning wheels capture perfectly the Pyrenees region of Catalonia. It’s quiet and peaceful but not in a way that should be mistaken for inactivity. There’s always something happening.”
The unique landscape of the Costa Brava is the main source of inspiration for the surrealist artist, Salvador Dalí.
A walk along the paths of Ronda with blue sea background and whimsical shapes of the coast, are enough to experience the sensations Salvador Dalí lived when creating his works.
In this article, Michael Turtle shows us the area deeply, analyzing every detail and relating it to the Dalí creations.
“Rocks like animals, trees like people, perhaps even clouds like melting clocks? Dali grew up in this region and as a child he would spend time along the coast. Impressions as a child led him not to become an impressionist but a surrealist. Surreal impressions? More likely surreal interpretations of these natural surroundings.”
