Yoga in the landscape

My cousin Emma is a very highly regarded yoga instructor, and I love taking pictures of her and her friends. Adding the human element into a dramatic landscape utilises both my wedding and landscape experience. Of course it's no use having the photographic expertise without a willing and equally skilled model. Holding the poses for a sufficiently long time, in often uncomfortable places, is crucial to the success of a picture like this. So a big thank you to Emma for enduring the session last night, this was not an easy image for either of us to obtain, but well worth it as I think the result is truly spectacular.
