Keesh Lorraine is an amazing model in the Madison area. You can see some of her other work on her Model Mayhem site. I first contacted her about working with gold leaf, such as the ones I’ve done with Rebecca. We ended up going a slightly different direction doing outdoor nudes at Devil’s Lake State Park. While not the first time I’ve visited the park (many times as a boy scout), it was the first time I’d photographed there. And I hadn’t been there in quite a few years.
After stopping at the Visitor’s center for a vehicle sticker, we went to the south side of the lake to climb the east bluff.
In the far left distance you can see the lake, about a third of a mile away. At this point we’re about 200’ above the lake, though we’d only gone 75’ horizontally. I’d wanted to go higher, but, um, I’m not in that good a shape. So we stopped here and got quite a few pictures.
