La montagne... Il émane une réelle puissance de ces lieux, de vaporeux sentiments s'entremêlent. Fascination, angoisse, humilité... Une étrangeté omniprésente éveille en vous des émotions instinctives enfouies, votre esprit est ramené au stade primitif d'une sorte de contemplation craintive. Des forces brutes semblent habiter ces immensités. Des forces, des présences, de l'énergie...

J’erre en ces monts perdus en quête d’atmosphères sombres, d’instants oniriques hors du temps, surréalistes. Le concept des Terres Perdues est basé sur ces sentiments. Ce sont des visions éphémères d'immensités sauvages, de lumières oubliées.

Le soleil est absent, le silence est maître.

This was that Earth of which we have heard, made out of Chaos and Old Night. Here was no man's garden, but the unhandselled globe. It was not lawn, nor pasture, nor mead, nor woodland, nor lea, nor arable, nor waste-land. It was the fresh and natural surface of the planet Earth, as it was made for ever and ever, — to be the dwelling of man, we say, — so Nature made it, and man may use it if he can. Man was not to be associated with it. It was Matter, vast, terrific, — not his Mother Earth that we have heard of, not for him to tread on, or be buried in, — no, it were being too familiar even to let his bones lie there, — the home, this, of Necessity and Fate. There was there felt the presence of a force not bound to be kind to man. It was a place for heathenism and superstitious rites, — to be inhabited by men nearer of kin to the rocks and to wild animals than we.
