The last two days of working with R_ were spent driving from Skye to Edinburgh, where R_ would depart for mainland Europe. I didn't spend as much time researching this portion of the trip, so to some degree we were improvising where we photographed; in this case, it was near the Queen's Scottish residence, Balmoral.
As we moved more and more into the lowlands, I began to see landscape
that reminded me more of Yorkshire, where I lived for a time as a child.
While R_ thought it wasn’t much of a location, she did indulge me
in making this image on the side of a hill, overlooking the rolling
landscape of lowland Scotland.

I caught sight of this building just off the main road, so we turned around and investigated. It turned out to a well maintained but abandoned structure - perfect for photographing a model in!
Part of the joy of working with the nude in architecture is the
opportunities it offers for posing; in this case, the composition came
from the double-doors, but the pose was improvised in-situ by R_,
taking her cue from the archway around her.

With a number of small open windows in the building walls, R_ had a wealth of posing potential to work with, though this pose was pretty obvious even before she worked her way into the space.
