Though this trip wasn't specifically focused on photographing Miranda, we did make time for some images to me made on the second day; not being familiar with the location made finding a space to work in a little challenging, but with some effort, we found ourselves a deserted stretch of coast, and began with some portraits.

As pleasing as the portraits were, the real focus of much of the shoreline session was working with the waves; there were several large rocks which per perfect for Miranda to pose upon (keeping dry) while still being in a space where to movement of the water could be capitalized upon.

I hadn’t even noticed this tombstone, but when I’d finished photographing Miranda with the larger stone, Miranda asked if I wanted to work with this one -
and as soon as I saw how surrounded it was by brush, I said yes,
certainly, envisioning how light the foliage would look in infrared! This is my second Nude with a tombstone (the first being made two years before with Ingrid), and I have to say, I was much more comfortable with it the second time around...there is a reverence to Miranda's pose that seems to suit the setting..
