Sunday Stills - Powerlines and Landscapes


Well isn't it always wonderful to see a beautiful sunset or sky and have powerlines and road signs and all manner of other things interrupt our photographs? Well here are my two top pics for this weeks challenge. By the way, I did absolutely no editing on either of these photos. I can't believe the color I captured in the first sunset!
Here's the blurb for this week:
"Sunday Stills the next challenge: Powerlines and Landscapes
I was attempting to photograph the sunrise this morning and would’nt ya know it the darn powerlines were everywhere, which brings us to the next challenge. If you can’t beat it use it, since power lines are a photographers worst nightmare lets use this to our advantage. So find a cool landscape, sunrise, that would look great except it needs the dreaded powerlines to mess it up, and throw in a bilboard too, they are just as bad..:-)
I’ll include a pic with this challenge so you get the idea.
Have fun…Ed"

  15. Gorgeous! There's even a plane in that top photo. And the cars, plane and powerlines fail miserably to mar that beautiful sunset. :)

    Well done!
