I spent the weekend shooting with :iconperrygallagher: and :iconpelicanh: in Portland, OR. I was raised in the Forests of the Pacific N.W., and so I was right at home! Michael wished to shoot me in this tree, and I was instantly sold on the idea!! The scent of the moss, the songs of the birds, everything was perfect... except for the mosquito's and fly's!! :giggle:

Michael was so sweet to carry me back to the Cabin piggyback... it seems that the Watchers of his Gallery feel I appear as a Faerie or Nymph... I simply love the Image and the wonderful memories it carries with it!!

Thank you, thank you Michael!!! :heart: :blowkiss:

As I told Michael, you are in your natural habitat in this, Shy! I always thought there was some mixture of fairy and elf in you! You just seem to have that free-spirited energy that these mythical beings would have! Some people just should not wear clothes. It takes away from their natural beauty! I am just awestruck at this! Wonderful picture, shy! Is this how you met Michael? LOL! Just Kiddin'! Again, BEAUTIFUL!!! I'd love to draw you as a fairy from this picture! just add wings, and poiny ears, and VIOLA!
SteevDragon Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
pointy ears, rather!
AriaDreamGirl Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
Shy, I know you get massive amounts of feedback and naturally each may become less and less meaningful to you. Not out of choice, but out of the nature of abundance. So I just wanted to grab your attention long enough to say that this photograph just does so much for me. You are such a wonderful person and you look so amazing in this shot. Kudos to all who were involved. :kiss: :cuddle:

eoNblue-saturNalia Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2009
such a beautiful picture. it's so soft and sweet. it's so much of how i see/feel when i think of the forests (also in the PNW).
and you're such a lucky lady, to get to feel all that green green moss against your bare skin!
darknesmynite Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist

Surely these woods be enchanted, for there are magical creatures slumbering in the trees.
mdandree Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008
You and Michael have openned my eyes to a whole new world of photography! (I used to write & Illustrate children's books!) :) I love the perspective here.

I know how you feel. I miss the evergreen forests. You look so serene in this one.
chimangetsu Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008   Photographer
Wonder if anyone's photoshopped this to have a set of gossamer wings laying folded against your back. That'd be epic... too bad I'm PhotoShop-retarded. =(
eliparham Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008  Student
I spent the first two years of my army career in WA state...I really miss the woods in the great Pacific Northwest...lovely bad I never came across a nymph like you when I was wondering the woods

kelceyolson Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2008
I've lived in Washington my whole life and the forest are so gorgeous :D
Amazing shot, you look so 'at-one' with nature, it looks lke you got so comfortable you took a little nap :]
AlchemyGaara Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008
I like this angle.
Especially comparing the green to the skin color, and the size of the feet (due to the angle), the picture gives off an Elf in the woods feeling. The hair color goes wonderfully with the background. Red and green. After all, they are perfect matches on a color wheel.

I've never... smelt moss before~
Shy-Too-Shy Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008
Thank you so much, it is one of my very favorite Images!! :heart:
AlchemyGaara Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008

P.S I sent the message before i read the comment, so i missed teh whole nymph discusion in it. XD

Truly wonderful composition. The mixture of both types of natural lines and the depth of color is spectacular.
Absolutely gorgeous!
Vejaybejay Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008
Je trouve que cette image est très tranquille :D
Dunno if you french! (<---used as a verb)

This picture is so calm and cozy, comfy, nice. It could be called something like 'back home'... But that includes a house :-/
I love the pic!

Caught-in-Nightmares Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2008
Oh my...almost makes me wonder if you aren't of the element yourself. Michael always has been able to see some extremely proper settings. I think he may have outdone himself in this one... I've been a fan of his since...oh...*Thinks back.* ...Mid to late '06, I believe? Anyways, it's nice to see that one of his ladies is on here as well. Pleasure to meet you, Ms. Shye. ^^
Faloopa Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2008
Fantastic contrast - green moss and white skin. Very striking. I bet it's amazing in very high res.
