Water is a good servant, but it is a cruel master.
John Bullein, 1562


The dikes protected Grand Forks this year, but when it comes to the Red River we have no illusions about who is the master! And it's so nice, each year, to leave April behind us!

edited in LAB; I'm really liking LAB mode for editing landscape scenes!

Twitter! It really isn't what I thought. I didn't expect it to be a way to cull information, like about genuine medical/mental health topics: http://bit.ly/XjXKT and http://bit.ly/SERd8

or that it would result in an email saying that "Lost Zombie is now following you." (This sounds much more ominous than it is, and actually involves a collaborative writing/scrapbooking project creating a scrapbook on the timeline of a superflu/zombie (fictitious) event.

The color is so gorgeous here. I have been thinking of trying twitter but I don't really know if I can add something else into my cyberworld lol.

Beautiful. Very nice shot.

Mandy said...

Gorgeous Angela...wow. I am so in awe of this photo. It seems so luminous, yet spooky at the same time. It is definitely an emotion evoking picture.

I love the layering shades of the sky and the reflections in the river captured by this shot. I grew up across the road from a river and was taught at an early age to respect it (and, as with many of life's lessons, I pushed the boundaries a couple of times.) Great quote and excellent photo.

Wow...wow...wow! What a fantastic photo to end the month and the perfect quote. So true, so true.

You are one terrific photographer and journaler...

Just saw your comment on my blog- thank you darling! :-) I am almost ashamed to tell you my "secret" though... because all I've been doing is running my light & dark action and selectively lighening and darkening parts, then I've just been boosting the contrast a good bit (like +30 or 40!). That is all! *blush*

Amy said...
