Mythical Siren

I came across this amazing Welsh beach and came up with the idea of creating a Mythical Siren image with crashing waves and deadly rocks. Making it actually happen though was quite a complicated challenge, getting the light and tides right, together with actually getting the fearless Raphaella and rope out there and my own vantage point to shoot from. In the end we all had to almost swim back to shore, another 5 mins and we really would have been stranded, great fun though and a challenging retouching job.

Raphaella on Welsh Rocks cast out to sea in theatrical image.

And here to show you that it’s real!!
