In Greek mythology, the Naiads (Ancient Greek: Ναϊάδες) were a type of water nymph (female spirit) who presided over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water.

This one was taken a year ago, while I was driving to my village to meet my family. On the way there is a small river, so I decided to make a quick stop to see if there was a photo opportunity there. Of course there was, so I ended up spending an hour there, disregarding the ominous sign warning me that the nearby dam could open at any time without warning, resulting in the river possiby drowning me. Who cares for such silly things, right? So there I was, alone in a chilly river with my new red wig. It was a challenge to shoot at this location, as testing my settings meant going in and out of the river with its very slippery stones. Plus I had just bought my new remote at the time and it was getting on my nerves, as it refused to work the way I wanted it to. Nevertheless I shot a couple of images. I liked this one the most.

The reason why I am editing one year old pictures is, for starters, that I never made time for them in the past year (shame on me). In addition I am now six months pregnant (it’s a girl!) and I am getting married in a couple of weeks, so I ‘ve had my hands too full to shoot anything new, plus it is too hot here for me to wander around with my round belly. I have a few more pictures from last year that I want to edit and then we’ll see. The following months will surely be an adventure for me and my photography too!
