Hold back the river

“Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back”

Dog help me, but my first thought on seeing this beautiful image was “What a lovely chalk stream!” – which I think it is.

You look gorgeous, as usual.

Actually no, I don’t think it is, but there is one near me but whenever I have been to take pictures there have been kids there.

This is so beautiful and the words choked me up. That feeling of holding back a river of emotions or tears is so real to me and this image SPEAKS to me. You’re an artist, Molly. This is just breathtaking.

The photo is simply stunning. Truly. The shadows on your skin and the scenery – but what i love most is the way your head is turned, deep in thought – gorgeous x

Holy crap that is beautiful, the way the shade hits your skin. Yes, this is wonderful.

I often feel like your self portraits feel painted. This is no exception. The contrasts and the situation is glorious. A mixture of Monet and Klimt.

I’ve always loved running water and would love to take some photos with it. You do a great job! What nice clear water, too! Nebraska used to have little running water, now it’s had too much (flooding) and the water is dirty and not save to go in.

Absolutely gorgeous image, and the perfect quote to go with it. Soon you don’t have to hold back the river anymore, my beautiful friend.

This picture is so brilliant! The shadows of the leaves on your body. The stillness yet movement. You have become one with nature, letting go. The words that fit the picture perfectly.

This is so beautiful Molly. The way that the shadows fall on your skin seems to decorate your body and make you truly part of the scene. You are stunning and this is a perfect example of how talented you are. The words make it even more poignant 😊

The dappled sunlight and shadow on your skin draws me in … and this is a really beautiful photo with a lot to look at and a very strong current of feeling.

Wow! This is a gorgeous image. The foliage, the water, the shadows on your beautiful skin. Just brilliant. How amazing that must have felt!

I really can’t love this enough Molly, the dappled light on your skin is beautiful and the image really is a work of art and should be a painting! I really envy the freedom to create such breathtaking outdoor shots x
