Dryad, in Greek mythology, a nymph or nature spirit who lives in trees and takes the form of a beautiful young woman. Dryads were originally the spirits of oak trees (drys: “oak”), but the name was later applied to all tree nymphs. It was believed that they lived only as long as the trees they inhabited.

This was from my first outing with my new zoom camera lens and the same hot day as Make Hay was taken. This slightly shadier spot was much more concealed and I felt so much more confident walking around naked back and forth to my camera and I think it shows in the photos. Maybe I am a Dryad!

  1. You take such lovely and creative photos and this is no exception. There is something new to see every where I look. I love the way the shadows play across your skin and your pose is just exquisite!
