This is a shoot I did with my friend, Rachel Nolan. She was really up for anything and interestingly enough I had a whole plan for everything including outfit (which worked out perfectly) and location and last minute we actually ended up going somewhere else which completely worked in our favor.
This is one of my favorite beaches because it has some unique aspects and this time I was shocked to what we came across. A ship which had appeared to be wrecked along the little shore which was left available. This is not a spot one would expect to find a boat of any sorts due to low tide, shore, and heavy rocks. Then after having a jaw dropping reaction we noticed all the wood floating around the boat and down the shore. It was just perfect. It made my whole idea come to life.
Another aspect which ended up working more perfectly than I could have imagined was having a hide tide. Normally, in the times I have been here I have been able to walk close to the cliffs without getting wet if I wanted. This time that was not the case. We got soaked just trying to get near this amazing shipwreck. Needless to say, I was not going to pass up the opportunity to get right next to it and take photos.
In the midst of our short, up close, and personal shoot with the ship were were asked multiple times if we were okay and how we were getting back around. Thanks to all those people we hastened our adventure and that was probably best because we ended up getting even higher tide. Let me just say I was lucky to not have fallen and ruined my camera since we were being pushed along the cliff side by many waves, strong ones at that. Even though it isn't the safest thing I've done it was totally worth it!
We continued our shoot on dryer land and found ourselves in much need of dry clothes and a couple of showers once we headed back into town. I am so glad things happened the way they did and we got to witness such a interesting sight. It is a story I will tell for years to come.
Thank you all for reading, I'll be seeing you... Au Revoir!
