“Once, I got out of the car with an umbrella to get a shot, and the umbrella nearly broke from the wind,” she explains. “I’d never been anywhere so remote—it was a complete contrast to the hectic city of London, where I live and work. I rarely passed another car, and all I could see for miles was rugged coastline.”
