Daily Deviation

Given 2009-01-18
Island in the clouds by =sleepy-gargoyle Suggester writes "It's aesthetically surreal and technically flawless, I think, in its composition, depth, and usage of texture -- and is a subtle-but-beautiful commentary as to the possibility of unobtrusively blending technology with nature." ( Suggested by eurai and Featured by kkart )

Great piece I looks fantastic as if the wind farm is keeping the floating island up in the air.

Nice stuff. The inclusion of the birds at the bottom of the frame certainly makes the viewer feel like they're above the clouds.

"Windmill Windmill keep on turning!"

Cloud City goes "green" eh? Did The Empire mine all of the Tabania Gas?

The republic took over after the death of the emperor. Thus making cloud city green.

Windmill, windmill for the land, is everybody in?

I'm sorry, I couldn't help the reference, because the clip from this song form Gorillaz contains a sort of floating island.

People sometimes think of modern wind farms as ugly. This photo clearly proves them wrong. Although I really think the focus is on the birds, the win mills make you look closer, kind of a "wait a second" moment.

It reminds me of the lyrics to "feel Good Inc." by Gorillaz.
Windmill, Windmill for the land.
Love forever hand in hand
Take it all in on your stride
It is sinking, falling down
Love forever love is free
Let's turn forever you and me
Windmill, windmill for the land
Is everybody in?


Anyways, this is an amazing photo.
