You should put together a sunset/sunrise book of your photos!

Perfect combination of sky and towers - it makes a great statement about power.

I love this . . . the softness of the colors in contrast to the hard lines of the transformers. Beautiful.

that is one powerful sunset. do'h! it's a beauty. there's something ominous about power lines. maybe it's because I live so near a power plant and the landscape is scattered with more than I want to see. you've managed to make them look graceful and lovely.

You have shown us that even something as intrusive and potentially ugly as power lines can look good in the right light. Its a beautiful shot.

Those are what would have been called "monster pylons" around here!

A real electrifying shot :-)

Carver said...

I loved your title for this gorgeous sunset. Sometimes the power lines add to the drama and beauty and I think this is such a case. Almost like sculpture.

Hi,

Love fiery sunsets, the silhouette is a bonus, I need to try harder!....:)

Halcyon said...

This is gorgeous! What a spectacular sky. :D

PS: I'm back in Toronto for good. But internet is spotty for the time being, as I am using it in cafes or at my kitchen window (when the neighbor's are not on). Hope we can still plan a meet-up. The weather is certainly better for it now. :)

Jacob said...

Great sunset. Great picture of the sunset. Great title for the post of the picture of the sunset!

cieldequimper said...

This area is long overdue for a sky like this one. It is awesome...such vivid color. Know it must have been stunning there in person. What a treat for the eyes. genie

Even electrical transmission towers can be beautiful when illuminated by a dazzling sunset!


UP IN THE SKY

Look up, my love,
Up, up in the sky!

Look up, my love,
And I’ll tell you why!

Suns and planets
Are wheeling in view;

Ten thousand stars
Are shining for you!

Heaven is burning - Call the fire brigade.

Arija said...

A wonderful sunset ad a great capture, not that I am a fan of those monsters creeping across the landscape but they do have their uses. Like your pun.

Jack and Joann said...

Beatiful red sunset. I have reds in my pics for Skywatch but they are the fires burning in AZ.

ladyfi said...

Love the pun. Great stunning colour in that sky.

Joyful said...

That's certainly a gloriously coloured sky.

""rare*jonRez"" said...

That is indeed powerful! And glorious! And magnificent! :)

I hope you can visit and see my MARVELOUS MOON captures and be amazed yourself! Have a great weekend!
