Tanis III

Digital infrared original
The last work with Tanis for the day was made on the coast of the Bay of Fundy; we'd timed it so we would have the late afternoon light at low tide, so for much of the last hour of photography, we were well under the high-water line, but high and dry! At the edge of the tide line, some massive trees had collected, providing Tanis with a perfect setting to pose in.

Further out towards the ocean, lines of wharf pilings emerged from the ocean floor, long ago sheered off and battered by tides and time. With the afternoon light at a low angle, a careful pose at the end of line of wood caught the light at exactly the right angle.

Along the edge of the bay, a high cliff rose, worn away by eons of tides; a gap in the sandstone provided the perfect point of perspective on Tanis, framed by the stone. There can be a certain timeless quality to Nude portraits, and this one is no exception.

The last composition of the session, and the end of a long day of photography, was made on one of the sandstone rocks pulled out of the cliff-side by the 10 metre tides. I really enjoyed how stark and delicate Tanis appears upon the bed of rock, rubble and beach rock spreading out beyond her.
