Terrific summer image, beautiful scene nicely composed. The man in the backgound really adds to the image. Makes me wish for warmer days. #115537

Thank you very much for the creative and wonderful comments. It was a hard shot to get. The afternoon sun was just beating down on us and I had no one to hold my reflectors. Luckily the sun went behind some clouds and we took the opportunity to shoot right then. I got this shot as a candid. It was pretty warm and she was hot. She kicked her shoes off (if one looks, they can be seen sitting on the rock beside her) and she put her feet in the water and was reaching down into the water, trying not to fall in. I snapped several. Funny, I had not noticed the man in the background until you mentioned it. Great. It gives the eye something else to drift to and that's good. It's not distracting. I really appreciate that you took the time to comment.
