Scotland 2008 Part XXXIV: An Evening in the Hermitage, Dunkeld

Digital original, 2 frame exposure blend
The last evening that R_ and I had to work together before her departure from Scotland was spent exploring the Hermitage, a National Park with a great waterfall and an old bridge.

Once we'd explored the areas some, it was apparent there were some great sections of the river just off the beaten path - which is where R_ and I headed without hesitation.

The water-carved dip in the rocks was such a perfect place to place a model, and R_ was more than willing to explore the possibilities…however it was only once she had been thoroughly covered in midge repellent that she actually managed to find a pose she could hold long enough to make an image.

After working with the water-carved rock, we moved a little further downstream, and made some images of R_ in the river proper, with the evening sky reflected in the swift moving river. With a suitably long shutter speed, the water blurred beautifully, creating a really pleasing image.

This image was made at the end of my the second last session R_ in Scotland. We'd finished up working in the river, but couldn't head back to the B&B without making a series of photographs on this wonderful moss-kissed multi-layered rock.

One of the greatest wonders of working in Scotland was how late it was light - this image was made well after 10pm, and it was more than light enough to photograph with ease!
