The title of this post is taken from a really terrible – on all sorts of levels! – TV programme in the UK that I have watched bits of once or twice…

This last week I met two potential models, with whom I plan to do some interesting and in part slightly crazy photoshoots in the near future (not necessarily with the two of them together, though that is also a possibility at some time in the future). One of the very nice things to come out of these discussions is that I am thinking a lot about about locations for shoots – we have a number of ideas, and so I can link plans for landscape excursions with planning photoshoots with these two lovely models. This has to be a good thing!

An idea developed with one of the models involves a particular setup on a hillside.  I know which hillside I want to use, so I planned an exploratory return trip this weekend.  The photographs I have from my last visit are quite uninspiring, for example:

Castlelaw Hill Fort, Pentland Hills

But today I had snow to contend with!  The car wouldn’t even get up the little road to the car park when I was out before dawn this morning, so I gave up on the idea of exploring the hill altogether – and explored some fields and woods instead!  There are some images (just the digital ones – the film ones will take a little longer) in a gallery tracing some of the changes from autumn-winter.
