A bonus set shot by Stephan Brauchli in Switzerland. I am in love with these images, the shape of my body is complimented so well by strong layered structure of the rocks. Of course, as this is a bonus set, and was "gifted" to me by Stefan, it is not available for download. We made a fun little video in Zurich the day after this shoot before I got my flight home and I will post that next week :).
Sing, sing, sing, you blackbirds!
Sing, you beautiful thrush!
It's Spring, Spring, Spring; so sing, sing, sing,
From dawn till the stars say "hush".
See, see, see the blossom
On the Pear Tree shining white!
It will fall like snow, but the pears will grow
For people's and birds' delight.
Build, build, build, you chaffinch;
Build, you robin and wren,
A safe warm nest where your eggs may rest;
Then sit, sit, sit, little hen
Another set shot in the breath taking Swiss Alps by Stefan Soell, at the last light of day.
Here below is a back stage image of me posing in some sun glasses below at the start of the decent into the valley we shot in, and a few of my holiday snaps of some pretty things that I saw during the trip 🙂
I found the Swiss cows with their furry ears particularly cute.... They say they make chocolate milk you know!
In a mild Swiss September afternoon, we found this delightfully enchanted looking dried up burn whilst hiking en route to a different shoot location. The way the light streamed through the overhead branches and the intense green shades of the moss made me think of a fairy tale book that I read as a child.
This is also one of my favorite sets to date!
Nixies are shape shifting water spirits from Germanic folklore, they have the ability to show themselves in many forms. They often appear as beautiful women and are commonly compared to mermaids and Greek sirens. Nixies entice sailors towards them with their intoxicating melodies from which the victims only escape is death by drowning.
