We are lucky living in Cornwall. We've got some amazing scenery and beautiful countryside here. I still struggled to decide where to go for a photoshoot this afternoon. I wanted to get some new photos of some of my older shawls and a couple of new designs. Vanessa agreed to model for me. 
Our first location was a lane near the Boconnoc estate where Simon walked the dogs with his parents a couple of days ago. He though it was an attractive area. 
 Vanessa took the photo above & below in a break. I especially love the photo above. While we were driving down this lane we saw 2 deer run across the road in front of us. We didn't get a chance to snap a pic but it was amazing to see them.
 After taking photos of the Mystery Shawl and the Trethawle mitts, we drove on and came across Braddock Church. There was noone around so we decided it was a good location to try to get some photos.
 The grave yard here is full of old grave stones like this one:
 Vanessa warming up during a break. Wearing fine shawls on a chilly winter afternoon was not her idea of fun. She kept complaining about being cold. I told her models have to get used to suffer. Not sure she agreed with me.
After photographing the Midnight Stole and Snow Queen at the church we headed up on Bodmin Moor and parked up near Sharp Tor. It was a little bit too windy and although some of the photos taken here were good, some need to be re-done. Vanessa was also running out of patience so we gave up and headed home.

All in all it was a successful photoshoot. I got some good photos. I need to do re-do a couple. I'll be sharing the photos on the blog over the next few days as I edit them a
