Seeking Warmth

Like a cat she seeks out the sun
and curls up within it until darkness has won.

Normally I would have a longer, more meaningful poem to go along with this shot for you guys, but today was busy and this photo was actually a very spur-of-the-moment occurrence:

I had just stepped out of the shower when I saw the last rays of daylight sweeping across the bed, and I literally ran for my camera, curled myself up, clicked the remote, and then the light was gone and the sun went down over the horizon. Sometimes, situations just present themselves, and I'm too much of a sucker for natural sunlight not to go for it, even with no time to put some clothes on :) I'm so sorry for baring so much skin recently!

Thank you all so much for your comments on my photos and poems as of late, I really REALLY appreciate it!!!
Wow, tha's amazing for such a spur of the moment shot! Great use of the light. I really don't think you need to apologise for bearing skin, you do it in such a classy way :)

Love love love this! I love moments like this!

Hey! Don't EVER apologise for baring your naked beauty to us! If anyone doesn't like it, it's probably because they need therapy! LOL!! The sunlight and shadows here are bloody marvellous! I especially like the lines around your ankles, leg and arm that are almost Frankenstein-ish. Matched with the look on your face, they give this photo a very dark feel. Faverooni!
