A nude figure floats joyously in a pool of brilliant blue water. She has tipped her head black; unconcerned with the world around her. Her face is turned away. Blonde hair streams away and ripples radiate from her body. Her chest is arched into the air and her outstretched arms dip into the cool water surrounding her. Her feet dip in the water as well.
Fresh water flows into the pool in the upper left corner of the image. Hanging vegetation adorns the top of the frame, with a shadow that extends to the upper right corner.
The cropping and framing of the composition gives the sensation that the viewer is hovering over the water.
