Tower of Power

A power line support looms into a cloudy sky

There’s a certain beauty to everything, even power lines when seen from the right angle. Symmetry, size and perspective can serve to transform the mundane to the interesting.

Gear: Canon EOS 60D, Tamron AF 10-24mm, B+W 77mm Slim-Line Circular Polarizer

Software: Lightroom 4, Photomatix Pro 4, Topaz Adjust 5

    Great processing, Curt. And you’re right, as you’ve framed this, it is very interesting. Nice job!

    Nice shot Curt. That is about as close as I would want to get.

    It’s always freaky for me when I stand near power lines. The buzzing and snapping make me uneasy. Nicely done, Curt!

    Nicely done, Curt.
    These towers catch my eye when aligned across certain landscapes. I find them to be nice photo subjects.

    So many lines. :) Curious if you heard any of the typical “electrical humming” being close to power lines.
