It’s a bit disheartening to see these power lines midst such spectacular natural surroundings but I suppose it’s the price we pay for having electricity in remote places. Can you just imagine though what these workmen had to go through in order to put up these towers and string the lines? How long ago were they put in place I wonder.

It always amazes me when I see them out in the middle of no where! Let alone on top of mountains!
You showed me this shot on your camera …and it works perfectly in black and white!
You cease to amaze me girl!
Awwwwwwww shucks! Thanks, Nancy. Hopefully one day the 3 of us can go out on a photo expedition and help each other.
Nice shot Teri! We have an army of towers much larger than the one in your photo that look like robots marching across northwestern NM from the Four Corners power plant.
Again, messing with the beauty of nature but what can we do if we want to have power to run our computers 😉
It’s a compromise. The towers are more interesting and not as intrusive as some of the ugly buildings that get built all over the place.
I hear ya!
Nice…Isn’t it fun to make art from mundane objects? Cheers!
The towers may be mundane but they’ve got a great view 🙂 Thanks
Reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode.
Wonder which one?
remember the one with the stage coach and the father went in town looking for medicine for his son?
One word for you…helicopter (and linemen with no agoraphobia)
They be a fearless lot!
Not only the height, but the high voltage…I knew a lineman for a time.
I knew a bunch of them in a former life. They were a rowdy bunch but electricity is no joke!
Great shot, Teri, made better by your use of B&W. By the looks of them, those towers have been there for a while. I think that style, for lack of a better word, is being phased out, at least around here.
When I see towers like this I always think of a monster movie and the lines exploding 🙂
I always wonder if these power lines being checked regularly. Power lines here sometimes located in the middle of nowhere! Great use of BW tones, Teri!
Thanks, Indah. I wonder too when they check on those lines other than if they go awry.
