Dreams by gilad Dreams by gilad

I dream of a better world,
I dream with two eyes wide open
Thoughts of utopia are always on my mind
Dreams reflected from the washed out reality

Dream on my friends.
Without the power to dream,
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

***

Early morning reflected in the Dead sea water, Israel.

I'm a little confused as to whats going on in this picture. Is that the horizon at the bottom...? and if so whats with the black strip higher up? That sky is very nice though.

how?! I can see that the rocks are reflected, I can see where the "mirror" is, but I can't see the mirror! The sky look so clear, not reflected and not anything.. how!? :+fav: because I stared at it for 5 minutes and I'm going to think about it all day long :o

I'm kinda outta words for this photo.. It's beautifully confusing. The shot is so great that you can't tell where the horizon is but you know it shows the sky...

I Love the Poem & the Photograph...

Reminds me of what a friend told me once,
Without my Dream's I find it hard too even breath...though I still do. Breath, that is. I still dream too. Hope will always keep them close & real with each new breath I take.
Things are never as the appear, so look past them all...and there you will find your Dreams once Dreamed, REALIZED!
...And there you will find LOVE.

The picture is upsidedown. the rocks are seperating the sea from the silent water reflecting the sky.

I hope that helped :D

I'm also one of those who can't get their head around this image. Whilst absolutely gorgeous, I still dont get it!
Contrast between orange and blue in the sky is stunning.

I think i'll be staring at this photo for a while...
