Thanks to :iconredwolf518: for putting this right on his page, in it's own little box. lol. He loves it too much, he says. :heart:


***********************************************************
"The Drowned Woman Of The Sky" Pablo Neruda~(Residence on Earth)

Woven butterfly, garment
hung from the trees,
drowned in sky, derived amid squalls and rains, alone, alone, compact,
with clothes and tresses torn to shreds
and centers corroded by the air.
.....................................................Motionless, if you withstand
the raucous needle of winter,
the river of angry water that harasses you. Celestial
shadow, dove branch
broken by night among the dead flowers:
I stop and suffer
when like a slow and cold-filled sound
you spread your red glow beaten by the water.


It was morning, I was on the way to my daughters school. (my time thingy is wrong on the camera. :shrug:)
I have been wanting to "redo" this photo, but mother nature has not be complacent to my wants. Something doesn't sit well with me...damn if I can figure it out besides just knowing...some places are too "glowy" and some look too soft. I don't fricking know!!
I cropped this one quite heavily. I am inexperienced in shooting directly into the blazing beautiful sunrise.
I need to take a class...or get a tutor. :eyes: (lol...)

Michigan, USA

Jointed rail! When you're in the locomotive going over this type of track, it makes this wonderful, rhythmic clacking sound.  The other type or rail comes in very long sections delivered on special trains, and it's called ribbon rail. Ribbon rail makes a very interesting screaming sound on curves. :)

dragon-fly-to-me Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
Yes, I see! :) I like how the train sounds when it goes past...especially the steam train. 
I don' t think I have ever heard that curvy scream, lol. Perhaps I will pass ;)

You seem so sweet and so genuine...and that is sooooo awesome!  :heart:   Where in Michigan do you live. My son and daughter-in-law and my two grandsons live up in Marquette, plus I've spent a lot of time all OVER that state!!  =D   ~Michael

I couldn't decide on the cropping.
I was torn...I ended up needing a couple friends advice on the cropping. :roll:

I wish you good luck and great fortune, :) Photography is a lovely expression, a beautiful medium.
