Young woman stepping out of the ocean

The young woman in this photo was obviously enjoying herself swimming at Tamarindo beach. She was with a friend and emerged from the surf with a bit of flair, don't you think?

She looks a bit like the pose of the Winged Victory statue in the Louvre, a copy of which is atop the dome of the Arizona State Capitol.

As you may recall from past photos, I try not to be discriminatory, so I will balance today's photo with a similar photo tomorrow, which my female readers may prefer.

We are showing photos of Tanzania this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

I wouldn't mind a beach vacation right now - but my wife would remind me that I just came back from a long vacation.....

She does look like she's in sheer heaven.

Love her expression of total joy and exuberance! Great capture.

PS. Why is a facsimile of Winged Victory atop the AZ state capitol building?

Pure Joy!

She's certainly worthy of a photo, even to an old guy like me.

I wonder if she was celebrating having been in the water or celebrating getting out?

Bob Crowe said...

Such pure joy of life. We hope we can approach this feeling next month.
