Amiens, Somme, France by Charlie Waite
Limited Edition Signed Landscape Print
I had never purposely travelled anywhere without a map, but I chose to when visiting the Somme and felt that ungoverned wandering might suit my mood.
A turn of a corner gifted this waterlogged grove to me. Being struck by the silver bark, I waited for the pale grey of the prevailing sky, too similar in tone to the trees, to be replaced by a chalky blue that would provide greater separation.
After the previous week’s flooding, the water had lowered by just a few inches leaving a dark damp belt, which conveniently separated the base of each tree from its accompanying reflection; an incidental consequence but a pivotal one.
