A well-timed gust of wind

The best outtake I have has already been used but that day trip last summer also gave rise to this weekend’s shot. As we wandered along the beach in search of a suitable cave in which to take this Sinful Sunday, @19syllables hopped in and out of crevices so I could test the framing each cave offered. This one wasn’t right for the image we had in mind, but a well-timed gust of wind delivered an awesome result nonetheless!

    The way the wind played with that dress is absolutely stunning!
    I am a bit creeped by the non-existent head though! I mean, it looks artsy. But also a tiny bit creepy!

      The trials of anonymity! We did originally crop the image losing the shape of the cave spoilt the ‘look’ of the photo so she had to lose her head instead!!

    The wind actually blew her head off? Oh no, I see it’s the dress! Just kidding of course! This is the perfect outtake picture! Love it!

    I love this image and the story that you tell about it. The headlessness is a little disconcerting, but adds to it in some way…

    Love it, it’s like the wind has a kinky mind of its own!

    It really is a perfect shot in so many ways and of course if you wanted the wind the blow and do that it wouldn’t

    How perfect is this, for me the pubes make it . Maybe it could start a craze of everyone growing pubes again 🙂

    Everything about this is perfect. I like the way you e cropped her head! It makes her look like a very lifelike mannequin. Beautiful!

    Oh wow, this is fantastic, very surreal as if she’s been transported through time or something! The perfectly timed capture at the gust and the stunning framing of her soft form with the rugged rocks is breathtaking and the missing head is just perfection! Gold star!!

    Absolutely delightful!

  18. Lexy

    It really is a perfect shot…I can almost feel the warm breeze and smell the warm sand.
