A pining nymph

A Pining nymph molly kneeling in the stream under weeping willow with shadow of leavs on her back
“Rippling through thy branches goes the sunshine, Among thy leaves that palpitate forever, And in thee, a pining nymph had prisoned The soul, once of some tremulous inland river” ~ James Russell Lowell

molly kneeling in the stream under weeping willow with shadow of leavs on her backI was all set up for this shot when a man appeared on the bank over to my left. Luckily I had not taken my clothes off at that point. I waited and waited and then he sat down and so I sighed, gathered my tripod and waded back to the edge. Of course then he engaged me in conversation about my camera and taking pictures, it is interesting that as a general rule men assume they know more than me about photography and that I want their ‘advice’. I smiled and let him talk and started to pack my stuff away. Maybe it was my lack of interaction but he eventually gave up talking and left. If only the bugs had joined him

    *sigh* I would ask you for advice if we ever both had time. 🙂

    Lovely image.

  • Victoria Blisse

    Beautiful shot, it’s so serene. 🙂

  • David G

    This is just a stunning photograph, lush, innocent and simultaneously erotic.

  • Modesty Ablaze

    I love your outdoor photos !!!
    Perhaps you should have asked him . . . “could you help me with some figure-study photos . . . and do you have any insect-repellant???”

    I love the way the shadows fall across your skin. They highlight and reveal, much like a form-fitting dress that dips low, showcasing the V into the small of your back.

    Lovely. <3

    Lovely photo

    Water Nymph!
    I like how your back is showing the shadow from the leaves. It’s so mysterious.
    Just out of the curiosity – have anybody caught you before when taking the pics?

  • Bibulousone

    Ooh, Molly
    This is delicious. The light is fantastic and you look amazing.

    What a lovely spot, and a lovely woman with a lovely back!

    Wonderful picture!

  • Simina

    Oi, nymphs and nature and water? My favorite. I love water photography soooo much. I need to do another nymph shoot soon. Mostly because I want to go swimming. XD

  • Cara Thereon

    I’d love to learn your photography ways. You’re a master of it and you take such lovely photos. It also doesn’t matter what we as women do, there’s always a guy around to explain it to us.

    This is just gorgeous. It reminds me of Gerard Manley Hopkins–“Binsey Poplars” “:
    ” That dandled a sandalled
    Shadow that swam or sank
    On meadow and river and wind-wandering weed-winding bank. ”

  • Bee

    Oh this is so beautiful. If only he could’ve seen your work, maybe then he would realise you know exactly what you are doing!

  • Marie Rebelle

    I bet if he knew what kind of pic you wanted to make he would have stayed to witness the sexiness 😉

    Well I’m very glad he eventually moved on because this is beautiful. Those shadows!

  • Violet

    Gorgeous shot, the epitome of summer. Too bad about the man-splaining though …

  • Mariasibylla

    Molly, you are simply the queen of outdoor goddess photos! I just love this, and I love the story of getting the shot even more. No one thinks of the bugs (human and otherwise) that you have to put up with as a nature photographer (Which is what you are, just as much as you are a portrait photographer).

    It’s a general rule among men that they know more than women about all subjects. Apologies.

    This is a stunning shot. The location looks beautiful but the subject of the photo is flawless.
