I had two shoots at the Loup o' Fintry last summer with Karen, and a third, home-based shoot at her flat this past January. Since then we've become close friends, but oddly, aside from a lovely day out on Cumbrae at Easter, I've never pointed the camera at her since.
Circumstances threw us together again though. It had been three months since I'd done a decent waterscape and I was getting antsy to try another before the good weather disappeared. Karen, meanwhile, had missed a shoot in Newcastle and desperately needed to fill her diary. I said "how about we travel to Glencoe for the day?" And that was it.
She's been hinting about being my muse for a month or two. Maybe this'll be the start of that? Fingers crossed.
