Rona, Doris and me...

February 25, 2017

I met up with one of the participants from my West Dean College course, the very lovely and talented tog, Rona Bassett, at Birling Gap yesterday to shoot the tail end of Storm Doris as it cleared the beaches and white cliffs of the South Coast of the UK - and geez was it windy. 100 MPH recorded at the top of the cliffs when we arrived. It sure made for some fantastic conditions though - if a little bothersome endeavouring to prevent camera shake - as we were experiencing entire planet shake while we were there...


It certainly blew all the cobwebs out of our gear and our brains!




Thank you for the delicious fish and chips dinner on the way home, Rona.
