power . . .

My first two commenters today prompt me to say this about today's photo; my post is not a statement for or against...I'm just recording what I saw today. Mainly, I was struck by the aesthetics of the lines of the towers against the gorgeous, and also power-giving, cloud formations. :-)

Aghhhhh! You don't know this but I hate overhead power lines with a vengeance! Ugly landscape killers! (I feel a lot better now!)

Like Chris, I look at these things and say to myself 'there must be a better way' . . but we seem to be spending a long while finding it ! Lovely shot for the teeth-gnashers !

Do not despair Dulcie, I appreciate what you saw today. I see what you saw; the lines and repetition in the lines against the blue sky and white puffy clouds. Sometimes a posting a statement, an exercise, an emotion or quite simply a glimpse of life. It doesn't really a matter. A posted image is a gift from the photographer for others to interpret as they may.

A powerful shot of these power lines and towers. And a beautiful sky. Nice composition. :)

Super! I like the juxtaposition between the man-made and the other-made

A photo that evokes strong emotions is worthwhile--good job.

Superb graphics formed by the wire in the sky. Excellent angle shot. Good day.

I can appreciate both sides of this argument Dulcie! There are times when we can see the beauty and others where it detracts from the image we wish to create! ;-)

though I don't love the lines in my scenery, you've made a beautiful artistic photo from them! certainly make me look at them more closely next time instead of trying to avoid them!

Beautiful image created by the texture of the clouds and the power lines ... Best regards, Adela

It is almost like we have gotten used to them as part of our landscape. The wires form an interesting contrast against the clouds.

For me this is music, a partition, a symphony, electric in the air, and i love the compo, and sorry to say so for some maybe, but i find it beautiful :)

Great sky dissected into so many shapes by the wires. Lots of interest.

Nice graphic interest in the lines and armature crisscrossing the sky. We do need them though, as lacking in esthetic as they are. If only there was a different esthetic to them, we might tolerate them better in an otherwise sublime landscape.
