Catching Fire

Way back on the 1st October 2020 I tweeted that I wanted Ouse Valley Viaduct to be the location of Kateroo’s 40th birthday shoot. Clearly the small matter of a pandemic got in the way of that happening in time for her actual birthday in December 2020 but this week we finally caught up with it. What an incredible day we had. Seven of us decamped to the Sussex countryside for a few hours of photography, picnicking and dodging of frisky cows in a field.

We knew if the sun was on our side the fiery tones of Ruth’s hair and the viaduct’s bricks would be a match made in heaven. This turned out exactly how I wanted it to, but there are many more to show from this day, including more of Ruth, some group shots, some of The Other Livvy and Exhibit A and some of me. So expect to see a lot of these arches over the coming months!

Sinful Sunday

    Such a great shot.
    Makes me want to get out with somemone other than myself to get shots like this.

    This is spectacularly lovely – Ruth’s curves echoing the brick work, the reds and creams, the poetry of it all. Thank you!

    I love this location, I may need to add it to my list! And I love how her hair and the bricks are so similar in colour, just perfect!
