Cloud Forest Silhouette

Cloud Forest Silhouette

I recently had a photoshoot with a dancer, and got some great photos of her in silhouette.

Slapton Sands, Devon

I was in Devon for 3 days, covering a wedding, and the Bed & Breakfast where I was accommodated was only 10 minutes’ walk from the beach, the famous Slapton Sands.
