pretty sky with utility poles

pretty utility poles, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

From late yesterday but I like it so it is being posted for today.
Part of my "trying to embrace power lines" challenge that I have set myself.
Shot this out of the window of a moving car.

Canon Rebel xti, shutter 1/400, f5.0, 200mm, iso 400

embrace the power lines indeed! i find, now, after many years of looking and cultivating appreciation, they provide some of the best beauty in urban settings! i still prefer the view without them, but since they're a reality where i currently live, i've learned to see their beauty. what an incredible sunset! and really, without the poles or *something*, the sunset wouldn't be as unique -- it needs some contrast to make us realize its gorgeousness.

Well, I have a strange affinity for all utility infrastructure. :)

This is nothing less than fantastic.

Embracing power lines. Hmmm. Not a concept I had considered before! But you have certainly embraced them!
Great shot. Love the sky and the criss cross of lines across it.
