Summer evening walk

Peaceful summer evening walk (near Tehidy, Cornwall, 1975). Not posed - I took this from some distance away. We were on our way back from a picnic and I had stopped to take a landscape photo as M walked on. She had stopped for a rest and kicked off her shoes as the grass was soft and refreshing. As she wandered down the hill the bright sun lit up her hair and created a nice silhouette through her cotton dress. I was pleased I had my new Soligor 300mm lens (cheap and optically very good but the focussing seized up after a year) to capture the scene.


PS: Also posted as a selective enlargement...
