I love the gloom- even when everyone else is whinging about it! It would be lovely to have a true Autumn day (wind in my hair, golden amber sunlight, flame-coloured leaves…) so I can shoot outdoors again, but when I get to snuggle on a cushion with mocha and a notebook while the rain is pounding on the roof, I’m happy.
I realised I hadn’t posted my images from Jim Furness during my last Scotland tour (on a cold and blustery day in April) at the same time I realised you haven’t seen many ‘classic Roswell art-nude’ pictures recently. So here you go- a shoot in the Scottish wilds. It was a beautiful day- there was a red kite zooming around above us… and then below us as we climbed higher than her perch. (I called her Skyfall). As we reached the summit of our location, we disturbed a couple of deer but I wasn’t quick enough to get a picture.
There were still daffodils in some of the places we passed- I’d love to do a nude bohemian-hippy-style shoot in a mass of them, but they’re always at roadsides! Maybe if someone created a diversion on one side of town…

I’m off to tour Canterbury tomorrow so must go and pack my suitcase of magic and mystery… Speak to you very soon!
p.s. I’m amazed at the numbers of new facebook fans I have! Thankyou so much, everyone- it’s lovely to have you. If you aren’t on my page yet, it’s here.
