This video was shot at the Manasquan Reservoir in Howell, NJ when the lake was at it's lowest. Normally this area is completely submerged. The scenery was perfect and the sun's rays beating down on Erin during our run immediately made me pull out my camera. I thought the music from the HBO TV show The Leftovers really added that extra emotional element.

"She is beautiful, the landscape is arresting and haunting, and the dynamic between her freedom in movement and the viewer (or camera's) intimacy is a bit heartbreaking. The simplicity of the solo piano suggests an even greater sense of solitude in her gesture and that of the observer. Yes, it is beautiful and surprisingly painful." - Kelly Lake (actress, instructor, director, producer)
