power lines







Can you see them?  Look closely.

The power lines are to the right of center in the above photo.


The skies were beautiful the morning after the rain.
Brilliant blue with fluffy white clouds over the green
of the hills and valleys.





The lines string across the rural landscape like chains
from tower to tower.





Silver ropes in the sun.






Sometimes barely visible.

Yet very necessary.

Without them you or I couldn't blog.


Or do a million other things that require something to
be plugged in to the grid.




Over the hills and valleys to your house.

Some things we just take for granted.


I am linking up with Raindrops and Daisies for



Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Such beautiful country. Great photos that show off your countryside. Unsightly as they can be, you have found a way to give them honor.

  2. They serve an importanat purpose and we would be useless in many ways without those power lines. They kind of scare me when I look at them....think about how much energy really does flow through them! You always give me something to think about, Pamela. I love that. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Aren't we lucky to take our electricity for granted?...just as we take the sight of those lines for granted.

  4. Beautiful pictures, it looks like the rain has done some good, leaving intense colours behind. It's funny how sometimes the power lines seem to fade from view, because we get so used to them. In one of the nearby villages they have a tall mast that has been disguised to look like a tree so that it doesn't spoil the view.

  5. Power lines are usually the bane of photographers, but sometimes you can't get around them. I've purposely included them sometimes if the composition is right. You are correct...if we didn't have them, we couldn't do most of the things we take for granted. That's gorgeous scenery!

  7. How come your power lines look so good? Ours are disgusting, ugly things. And you describe them like jewelry, which, they really do seem like in these photos (not that scenery that beautiful needs any help!)

  8. Your shots with power lines are very pretty. All that green is beautiful. I suppose we may as well accept them since we can't do without them. But, they are always in the way of my shot!

  13. What a great post and I love your photo's. Power lines are here everywhere too and most of the times we are used to them and don't see them anymore.

  14. The sky and scenery is lovely. I didn't notice the power lines at first. I love the way you describe them as silver ropes in the sun. We would have a hard time living with out them.

  22. Hi Pamela,
    What beautiful country! Love the silver one in the sun...looks like it was a gorgeous day. We finally received a good rain fall the other day too! Only we could probably use three days of rain. My plants are very happy! Have a lovely weekend!
    All the Best,

  24. Very nice photos! A play of colors ! The clear blue, the white clouds like cotton and calm of the green is a combination of peace and tranquility. We have to look often the sky!

  27. Power lines, their construction and repair, provided food for our table and other little niceties of life.:-)

    These are fabulous photos, Pamela, as always!
