My Sunday Photo... Yoga In The Park

Oh how I would love to say that this photo was taken of me doing a little yoga in the park... 
but alas it isn't me... but it's my daughter!
Pretty good isn't she? 
I love this photo for so many reasons... yes the light, composition and subject are all good, 
but it's the fact that when I first saw it I thought 'Oh she looks like my daughter' not realising initially that it was my daughter.
I know she's been enjoying taking up yoga, but I hadn't a clue that she had become so good. 
Now she's encouraging me to have a go... so if I become this good... you never know I might well post a photo of me one day! (ha)
As it's Sunday, I'm linking up with Photoalife once more and Wordless (on Tuesday at image-in-ing)

Have a wonderful stress free Sunday everyone.

  3. Wow that is very impressive and I love the way she is silhouetted with the sun's rays streaming out behind her. Gorgeous shot.

    1. Isn't it Louise. I think this might be one of my most favourite photos.

  4. Wow she looks like such a professional, look at that balance! Amazing photo too with the way you've captured the light. Yoga always looks so much easier than it is doesn't it?

    1. I know... pretty impressive eh? I tried to do this particular pose and I toppled over on the first attempt... on the second I wobbled and decided that I should start at the beginning before attempting this one again!

  5. She looks super impressive. You should take it up, too. You never know what may come of it!!

    1. I possibly do know what might come of it Tracey and it isn't attractive in any way... but yes I think I will start soon. I think it's brilliant to keep supple and healthy especially as I am getting on now ;D

    1. Haha Brooke, you got me there for minute. I was going to be impressed. Maybe I'll start with a downward dog first... or should that be an upward dog. Oh well you get the gist!

    1. I actually didn't know she was this good Cathy, until I saw this. I think it would make a fantastic black and white print.

    1. Well we all tried it Darren, and I have to say it's not easy. There were a fair few wobbles and tumbles involved!

  10. This is a fantastic photo - I love backlit photography and you have captured it so well. Your daughter is so balanced, it is clear she is enjoying yoga.

    1. Thanks Victoria, I think it's one of my favourite photos. You're right she's really enjoying her yoga along with running. It seems to be a good balance between the two.

  11. Hi Neesie, oh, to be able to balance like that! Your daughters silhouette reminds me a little of Tinkerbell. I have no idea why!

    1. I've tried it Debbie and it's certainly not easy, although I wasn't as bad as I thought I'd be. Nothing like this though and there were a fair few wobbles along the way!
      Tinkerbell would describe her perfectly. I'll have to call her that the next time we speak. She's away on holiday at the moment.

  16. It's a great photo with the sun silhouetting (is that an actual word?!?) your beautiful daughter. You should try yoga. I did and I like it, it is very calming.

    1. If it isn't a word Claudia it should be (hehe) I know exactly what you meant. I do intend to try yoga it's just I've got to juggle everything else in order to fit it in. Autumn sounds like a good time.

  17. That is such a fabulous shot! If anyone can encourage you I'm sure your daughter can.

    1. Oh she has been Katie, I've just got to knuckle down now and find the right class and time to fit it in. I'm thinking once the garden has calmed down... perhaps in early autumn, then it might actually be a good time to start.

    1. A downward dog sounds just about right for me Wren... but I know who would be right there in my face if I attempted it!
      Muffy thinks if you go down to the floor it's game on and she's full on fun! I don't think there'd be much relaxation going on!

    1. Isn't she just Nan. She always used to be when she was little, but I didn't realise it was ongoing! I told her to take a black and white print off it because when she was my age she'll look back on it, but her reply was 'I'll still be doing it then' and I for one believe her!

    1. Hello Linda in Montreal. How's things over there? We visit Montreal, Saint-Sauveur and Morin Heights and love it!
      Anyway getting back to your comment... I think there's nothing better than getting out and into the thick of nature. No matter what your mood may be nature is sure to make you feel better, or show you something spectacular.

  34. My GP wants me to do yoga, I just looked at her like she had grown 2 heads. This fantastic shot make me laugh at the idea of my ever doing something like this - perhaps when I was in my 20's but not now.

    1. I think it's a fantastic thing to take up... I just need to start. I think we should give ourselves a challenge... are you up for it? We have to post photo of ourselves mastering this pose! We can do it!
      I said to my daughter that she should make a print of this to look back on, but her answer was why would she do that because she'd still be doing it at my age and well beyond! So there you go! ;D
