road out of town . . .

Alamo, CA ~

This road heads into the hills and into the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness, which I've recently discovered is a great place to hike and shoot photos.

The town where I live has underground utilities, but the neighboring town of Alamo still has this visual interruption of power poles. There is a certain interesting rhythm to the height and line of the poles and wires.....and I like the humps and levels of this road.

I keep finding myself commenting on the strength of 'landscapes' with no sky. This is another fine example of the power no-sky brings. I guess the format is that bit easier when the road heads for the hills, too ! Lovely work, Dulcie.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom it a road, or is it a power pole?
Looks like the pole wins.
I agree with Ronnie on the no sky theme.

A road that thrills me. When I was little I loved the ups and downs of the car ... The esgtómago up to my mouth and then I fell to the feet. At that time when everything was a sublime game as soap-bubble! Best regards, Adela
