In The hills of Donegal

Grianan of Aileach

Outside Letterkenny in the hills of Donegal is the Grianan of Aileach. where its possible to enjoy views for miles in all directions on a clear day, and it proved to be a perfect setting for our outdoor themed shoot. A hand built recreation of the fort which would have stood here many years ago.

As with all shoots we tried our best to make the most of the weather and we had to move through as many scenerios as we could before the irish weather moved in to stop play.

And of course her beautiful styling and amazing hair where second to none.

and the stoney ring fort was an idyllic setting for the theme, with its green pasture and moss covered stoney facade.
