Such a beautiful merging of the human and the natural. Both elements are clearly present and just as clearly linked. The focus, both sharp and blurred foreground and the colors are wonderful.

It's a great idea and a great Photo. It's rich of symbolism about humankind, nature, and maybe referring to the ancestral myth of Great Mother. Fantastic.

This is just such an amazing concept! She really does look as if she's growing out of the tree, or with it and her face looks so serene and peaceful :) The greens in the background are so lush, and all the white blooms in the foreground are so pretty.

I can't tell you how much I love this series. To show that humans ARE a part of nature (if we act that way :p) and just the grace of the body.

The photo is amazing. But the body painting on her is just perfection! She really seems to be one with nature. I bet Gaia herself smiled when she looked upon this.
