Chrissie and I had a walk about the Famous Grouse Distillery a while back, we were scouting for suitable locations for a shoot. However it was a bit close to the main road and very close to a public walking area. However we took a chance and went for it, the water was icy cold as we both climbed into the water, yes its true I had to de-breek to get the shot....the little hairy legs got an airing!
Although it was July the water was still chilly and aftewards we wandered up to get a view and spied this blue bench over a farm gate.....perhaps an ideal shot for a model, what you don't see if the huge pile of cowshit that stood between the bench and us, pretty view anyway.
Chrissie and I usually drive around and try to spot areas worth exploiting, on the way up the Sma Glen we saw a huge line of newly felled trees, it must have been about 300 meters long and 10 meters high. Ideal really! We parked the car at the side of the road and did a shoot on the other side of it whilst cars whizzed past.
On a small road back to Methven we came across Keillor Wood, a small car park with 2 woodland walks, we took the south one..and found a clearing in the trees.
Which happened to be full of bugs and biting things that just loved the taste of the kind of pale skin that redheads usually have.......Chrissie was an unexpected treat for the wee bloodsuckers.
I returned to this place a week later and found much better areas for a shoot, some other time perhaps, when the beasties are dead maybe.
