Yellow (Coldplay Cover) – Live from Great Sand Dunes.

Video #3 of 4 from the “Live From The Parks” video series.

When I was wandering around the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado, I kept singing Coldplay’s song “Yellow” to myself. I don’t know if it was the line “turn it in to something beautiful” that kept circling through my mind? Or, perhaps I was reminded of their music video in which Chris Martin strolls along a sandy beach.

Nevertheless, an afternoon of having the song in my head led me to record a cover at the park. I captured inspiring film with my GoPro and filled my shoes (and pockets even!) with sand. Then, after a night of star gazing, I found an empty camp site and set up my “studio.”

The Great Sand Dunes National Park is truly magnificent. When I was there I was nothing more than a speck of sand that whisked around when the wind blew. What a magical a feeling.

I loved creating and editing the footage for this video, and re-living my experience at the park. I hope you enjoy watching. Who knows? Maybe one day you’ll find yourself in the valley of a dune! And if you do, please send me a photo 🙂
