Solkan bridge - Dream bridge by eriksimonic Solkan bridge - Dream bridge by eriksimonic
Solkan Bridge is a 220-metre long stone bridge over the river Soča near Nova Gorica in western Slovenia. With an arch span of 85 metres it is the second longest stone arch in the world and the longest stone arch among train bridges. It was built in the time of the Secession, between 1900 and 1906.

A poem written by ~SnowCullen

The Bridge of My Dreams

I have seen before
It's familiar but different now
Do I walk on it
The waves and curves making it difficult to understand
I have to remember
And I must see
I must see what is on the other side
My mind creating colors only few know
And ones I know all too well
For that is my nature
To see what others don't

Someone says why go
I say why stay
Because you are taking your chances
And it might not be safe
I don't worry about safe
Safe is fine for most I guess

This though is too beautiful not to cross
Not to follow
For it's better than a Yellow Brick Road
How do you describe something bathed in golden light
Flowing aqua beneath like a flow of lava
A dark blue sky like wallpaper

So
Do I stay or do I go
Go
To stay would be to never experience



Amela Ramic painted a painting from my "Dream Bridge" and I am very happy that someone like it so much.
Thank you.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-12
Dream bridge by =es-art is a fantastic Panoramic photograph of a fascinating location, composed of 16 portrait images. Well worth the effort on the photographers part! Don't miss the rest of this artists gallery. ( Suggested by PatrickRuegheimer and Featured by PorcelainPoet )
:iconpeterjcoskun:
First off, this image is simply amazing, im not big on human structures in landscapes, but bridges like these are an exception. The color of the river is absolutely stunning and really makes me want to just jump in. The exposure over the whole image seems spot on too, i find no overexposed areas nor underexposed areas. The image is just full of color and the way the sun is is hitting from the back of the bridge. The perspective of the image is awesome as well, composition here is just perfect allowing the water to flow under and along the bridge itself. Detail wise, this image is very sharp, especially the bridge. It brings out the textures very well as the light hits every corner. All in all id love to take a ride over the bridge and see wht the views are like, as well as taking a trip down the stream. A very well executed shot i must say.

I know that's a real bridge, But the way this photograph was taken makes it look unreal but in a good way; It's inspiring and educational for drawing.
