Monochrome Monday – Power lines

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!

    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.

  3. Nice…Isn’t it fun to make art from mundane objects? Cheers!

    Reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode.

  5. One word for you…helicopter (and linemen with no agoraphobia)

    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.

  7. 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!
