Ballerinas – a photographic journey (13)

We’d spent quite a bit of time already in this magical area just outside of Kamloops BC and taken some great images but I wanted something a bit more intimate to capture not only the ruggedness of the landscape, but also how something or someone looks instantly predatory in it.  So, we created a pose with an intense look and a ballet dancer ready to spring from its lofty perspective.

We were both feeling a bit worn by this time but I have to hand it to the dancer, Morgan for giving it everything in this difficult position.  We left shortly after this and she could hardly walk down the steep slope due to her cramping quad muscle!

Bottom line though, you have to put in work to get results..
