Valley of Tortured Souls

I shot this photograph yesterday in the Peak District.

 

I originally wanted to shoot a black and white image but when i found these moss covered rocks i knew it had to be colour! It was such a beautiful environment! My sister came from Leeds to help me shoot as it has been miserable weather here and i needed someone to hold an umbrella over my camera :) She also threw me my poncho between taking each image.

 

I was really nervous about shooting myself nude like this because I've only ever done it before in my garden or on private land, but after i had taken a few images i actually felt pretty empowered! And even though we were near a public footpath, no one came along :)

 

I have to thank Brooke Shaden (www.flickr.com/photos/brookeshaden/) for inspiring me to try this style. I am so happy with how it has come out! Hope you all like it too and i didn't freeze to death for nothing :p
