It's BurningMan style art.. except the grass is green and there is a stream. A )^( friend sent this to me, and you have to look closely before you apprciate it.

I'd be willing to bet this image is by Spencer Tunick (you can visit his website here; note that to enter the site, you have to click on the link that says "sign up to pose", although you don't actually have to do that: you can choose one of the other arrows at the bottom of the page you're taken to, to navigate further). He's been photographing large groups of nudes in outdoor scenes like the one you posted, or in street or other incongruous scenes, since 1992. I'm on the mailing list to pose next time he's in the Bay Area looking for subjects for a shoot; if it's not really cold or raining, it should be fun.

In fact, yes: it is Spencer Tunick's work: Find his listing under "Artists" at this site and you will see this as the third image. You'll also see a number of his other outdoor works. Thanks for posting the photo, I've always thought Tunick's work should be better known!

It's funny that my very first entry was to The Blue Dot which has Tunick's Naked States Tour.

I'm always a few years behind you Dan.. But it's also a very small world and I had to get there eventually. :)
