Landscape photography female nude

This landscape photography with a female nude is a black and white artwork ready for framing. A single female figure is depicted, positioned horizontally in the image. She props herself up on outstretched arms. Her limbs are straight and her muscles clearly defined. Blonde hair cascades halfway down her back. Around her neck is a delicate lace chocker, an oddity on her muscular body in this inhospitable environment.

She looks out with an intense and determined expression. Her large eyes are accented by theatrically thick, dark lashes. Sand clings to her body creating an intermittent pattern of granules from shoulders to fingertips, to toes. Her shadow separates her from the sand beneath her, then it extends to the right and out of the frame, helping break her isolation in the scene. The dark area of distant mountains at the left, which also extends out of the frame, balances this shadow element.

The landscape is divided horizontally through the middle by the top of the sand dune on which she is perched. Additional dunes recede into the hazy distance. Far away gray mountains define the boundary between horizon and sky. Footprints in the foreground are echoed on the next sand dune, yet no other people are visible in this vast expanse of white gypsum desert.

Although her body is modestly covered, a glimpse of the curves of her buttocks and breasts are on sensual display. Her toes are pointed backwards, continuing the lines of her legs. Her fingertips dig into the sand.

Some additional themes to consider include the very different setting of underwater art photography of women or for another less serious approach, take a look at a more whimsical art nude.
