Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
Ham and Petersham,
Richmond upon Thames

What a beautiful photograph! The place is gorgeous as is the scene you captured so well. Lovely.

Realy like the light. The backlighting is very effective, making the womn's hair glow.
I go with freefalling - remember the old use of melancholia had more of reflective meaning than our current one. You certainly caught the subject at just he right point, compositionally and for the lighting. Dare I say it might look just as nice in .......

The light through the leaves and the shadow interplay is beautiful...the granduer of the trees is breathtaking...great shot!
