I feel like I have not up-dated this for ages, but in reality it has only been a week or so.

Last weekend I was out with Simon, as usual we didn't actually have any plans. He was coming up to collect his studio lights from me. I borrowed them back in November and he has not needed them until now. The rain was heavy when we left Perth which was a little frustrating considering the weather had been fantastic the previous few days!

Anyhow, I suggested we head off up to Arbroath cliffs. Last time I had visited there was when I was just a little un so off we went. Just as we got into the car park the clouds started to break up and the sun poppep out. Perfect timing I think!

Sadly it was too busy to actually shoot and the places that werent busy were far too dangerous to get to. I don't mind taking some risks but sadly my balance is slightly rubbish at heights so we ruled them off for now.

The first image was just a light test really, I started the day with a big jumper on and a long skirt and ended up half naked. I got really sun burnt but then I had no idea the sun would shine so I couldnt have prepared myself.

After Arbroath we went to the beach, its like my all time favourite location. The fact it has an unofficial nudist section is a bonus really. There was people off in the distance but for the most part I was able to just skip around by the side of the water. Below is me having a dance, I think it was the hottest climate me and Simon had ever shot it so we actually had a rather productive day. I've seen us going 200 miles and come home with maybe 2 pictures and only shooting 10 haha.

I decided to cool off in the water :D like a little mermaid

Everytime I visit the beach I have the song 'footprints in the sand' going through my head so I asked Simon to shoot the image below.

I really love the summer time :D


  1. I love the picture of you dancing at the edge of the water :) Well done to both of you.
