Au Naturel

Photograph by Simon Roberts

In Munich, Germany, summer attracts sunbathers, clothed and otherwise, to the grassy banks of the Schwabinger Bach. The English Garden park opened in 1792 and is one of Europe’s largest. Its meadows have been popular with nudists since the 1970s.

I've been here; it was quite a few years ago, but I recall being somewhat surprised when I walked by a naked couple sunbathing on towels.  Nice park; very casual and comfortable.

Sun, water, nature, people. Photo of the day it is. Cannot see any animals. Maybe there is a single fish somewhere hiding.

Love the pic. Maybe it's not art but it's life. I realize there are many stories in the pic <3

@Truong Son Tape I love the way you are looking at the picture. yes, I agree, there must be tons of stories that each carries under his/her wings. Life. Simple, yet some people like to complicate it.

NATure and GEOgraphy are primary subjects, not art. Nice pic I would say.

This picture is art? There is nothing in this picture that would qualify it for photo of the day.
