A Tiger in the Attic

May in Scotland can be very unpredictable weather wise. It can range from hot to snow, however the day I booked Tigerbelle for a location shoot was distinctly grey and cool, both of us had wrapped up in warm clothes just in case. I picked Tigerbelle up from Montrose station and we headed of to St Cyrus beach, it was a handy location as we were restrained by time and had to return to the station for a specific train. Anyway we parked the car on the cliff top and worked our way down to the beach, first making for the derelict buildings whilst the beach was quiet and free from dog walkers.

We had a quick scout about and jumped straight into things with images from a ‘newly’ opened building.

Moving on from there to the next building, we climbed into the attic I had used before but this time I took some outfits to use. Though nude always works well there because of the light through the skylight window.

So on with the outfits, which being white were extremely tricky under the lighting conditions….

Time for a quick break whilst speaking to a dog walker, who was actually one of the rangers in this nature reserve. The hope is that in the future these buildings will be restored and used as a natural history museum.

The downstairs area for a brighter themed scene, again though, difficult lighting for camera work.

At St Cyrus there are plenty of rock formations that would be ideal to use for nude work, however by the time we finished the derelict building the area was beginning to be busy with dog walkers. So we headed straight to the waterfall to take a few scenes there. On the way we tucked into the cave whilst there was no one about….

Eventually after dodging the public we get a few shots at the waterfall…

Then lastly we had a few attempts at poses at rock formations but the weather was closing in and both of us were starting to get chilly. At this point I decide it was a good idea to throw Tigerbelle into the sea, well it was cold and damp anyways……why not get colder and wetter! It was way too cold for lots of shots but we did get a few.

Sadly we had run out of time and we made the slow torturous climb back up the cliff. It was a grand day out all in all, and it is always a treat to work with Tigerbelle and have a general chinwag with a few chuckles thrown in.
