Beauty on Boley Hill.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks indeed for your lovely response to my; 'Pre-Pandemic Face Mask' image, very much appreciated.

Today's images were taken on Boley Hill, Rochester. I was walking down the hill, having done a few pictures with three people making a documentary in the castle grounds, when I spotted this lovely young lady, with her boyfriend, walking up the hill towards me. I held me hand up to shield the blinding sunlight from my eyes and loved what I saw. Several shots later; this was my favourite five.
Her first reaction to my request was: "I'm not very photogenic." Well...I'd like to know who told her that!

Have a great weekend everyone and pretend you've woken up on the day before you heard the Covid news.

All the best to all,

Excellent again John

Totally cracked it with the lead shot ... I just love it when the sun comes through the hair from behind like that

Mind you, I am trying to work out how her jacket got into that position?

Looks like it's on its way off

Your instruction? In which case can we see v5 to v25 please? GrinGrin

A beautiful lass, and how pleased you must have been when she agreed to let you photograph her. Love that sideways glance in the final image.

A lovely set of portraits John. The lead is my favourite closely followed by V4; there's something very appealing about the contrast between the shadow and the light. 😀

Beautiful photo....
We only have 109 active Covid cases left in Melbourne. We have been fortunate as our 6 month lockdown has meant we have only had 20323 positive cases since the start of the pandemic and only 817 deaths.
