A thing of beauty is a joy forever,
It’s loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of dreams, and a healthy, and quiet breathing.

John Keats, 1818, from Endymion.
The shot is taken from a theater production where the girl (a dancer) is actually lying inside a tractor tyre getting ready to jump out onto the stage!

Taken with a Nikon D700 and a 70-200mm, 2.8 lens.Processed,layered and finished in PS
