Pylons in the Hills

Coming down from the hills at the end of the day and heading into the sunlight can provide some remarkable views of the landscape – dependant, of course,  on the weather conditions and time of year.

The end of my journey home from Felindre brought me down from the hills towards Pontarddulais in South Wales where there is a vast network of metal giants criss-crossing the land as part of the National Grid.

Electricity pylons seen against the light and the land need not be a blot, but rather a fascinating part of the composition, creating patterns and networks of lines that may not be natural, but are something we are happy to live with in order to have the power we need for modern life.

These and more photos can be seen and purchased at StillWalks PhotoShelter.

  1. They are interesting to look at. Hey I wanted to let you know I found one of your comments in my spam folder. I’m hoping it was a one time thing and you don’t have to go through that mess.

    • Hmmm. Interesting! Wonder what that means? Thanks for letting me know about the comment. I suppose I need to check that each comment i make on a blog actually shows up.
