According to Greek myth, Apollo chased the nymph Daphne in Arcadia. Apollo's infatuation was caused by an arrow from Eros, who wanted to make Apollo pay for making fun of his archery skills and to demonstrate the power of love's arrow. According to the rendering Daphne prays for help from Gaia, and is transformed into a laurel (Laurus nobilis): "a heavy numbness seized her limbs, thin bark closed over her breast, her hair turned into leaves, her arms into branches, her feet so swift a moment ago stuck fast in slow-growing roots, her face was lost in the canopy. Only her shining beauty was left.
Apollo Stood in a raptue with his arms around a laurel tree.


This is my observation of this Myth in Photography.
