The girl with the chestnuts

Taken in a chestnut and oak forest close to Skadar lake in Montenegro. The atmosphere in the forest was like from a fairy tale, since there was just an old road and barely no one passing along except from a few locals, taking goats or cows to the field. I asked my wife to take a handful of chestnuts and just hold them in front of her like the viewer is being offered to take some chestnuts. Since I used a Sony A7 with manual focusing Canon 85mm f1.2L it was a little bit hard to nail the focus at f1.2 without a tripod at this distance, since just a little movement could make her eyes out of focus so it took a little trial and error to get the ending shot.
