Nymphs and Satyr

By William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1873 A group of nymphs have been surprised, while bathing in a secluded pond, by a lascivious satyr. Some of the nymphs have retreated into the shadows on the right; others, braver than their friends, are trying to dampen the satyr's ardor by pulling him into the cold water -- one of the satyr's hooves is already wet and he clearly wants to go no further. #art #fineart #painting #mythology #classic

This is one of the many walking trails in Dismals Canyon. I took this picture a year ago and can't wait to go back. "Walking is a man's best medicine." - Hippocrates #myphoto #trails #outdoors #nature #photography
