The goddess of autumn has arrived

The moment I saw this photograph in the Life Thru a Lenz group at Flickr, this alternative title came to me. Rarely one sees autumn personified so originally and beautifully as in this "Fall self portrait" by fellow Flickr member Ophelia Photography. Everything comes together here: the beauty of the model, the placement of the leaves, the lighting, the colours, the crop. A really exquisite shot and one of the best I have seen on Flickr in recent weeks.
