The sun is scarce in the far north. Even when travelling in summer there are many days filled with fog and rain clouds. Weather conditions can change fast and drastically. But the dramatic skies seen so often in the highlands make for an interesting atmosphere fitting the remarkable and somewhat crass landscapes and rich histories filled with bloody clan feuds and brave, yet failed national rebellions against the English. Bad weather just seems to underscore the beauty of the country, other places on Earth need the sun to shine, Scotland though doesn’t need any endorsement from above and looks fine even in heavy rain.
This is the second part of a series shot in January 2019. You’ll find more information and pictures in the first part right here. The very talented violinist seen in the shots is the lovely Cynthia Bihary, please check her out!
In January of 2019 I had the pleasure to photograph the lovely and talented violinist Cynthia Bihary (sinoki) and her tool – that is of course the violin. The location we chose set the tone for the shoot; a beautiful old graveyard in Vienna. By coincidence this graveyard was also the original burying ground of one of the most famous musicians, Wolfang Amadeus Mozart. We channelled the old spirits and the particular mood of the place for the shooting, which lasted a couple of hours. I will present shots from this session in two parts. Following is the first part.
