E/ Alphabe-Thursday

 ELECTRIFYING #1

Power lines and towers owned by Hydro-One, the company that supplies the Province of Ontario with electricity.

As some of you already know (yes, my face is red), I mistakenly posted an E last week before I learned it was a D-week. Hmmm. If you would like to see my original E post on Elephants you can check it out HERE.

Kathy said...

At least you had a backup! That first photo is pretty amazing with the brilliance of the sun.

Neal said...

That sunset is gorgeous. An E for a D huh? You're suppose to tell everyone you did it on purpose to see if they were paying attention. :)

stardust said...

These metallic and geometric lines are in harmony with organic skies!
I love each and every image.

Tina´s PicStory said...

Halcyon said...

I have a special place in my heart for substations. I could probably tell you more than you want to know about the equipment in there!!
Love your sky. :)

Judy said...

I think we all have moments like that...I love how you made these power lines and towers look so beautiful.

TexWisGirl said...

Jack said...

Ah, these are things of beauty! (From a guy who spent a career in the power industry.)

Gillian Olson said...

Love the sky colours in the backgroound, I for one didn't notice the e mistake and loved the elephants.

Louis la Vache said...

Great "E_-post!
That top image is, well, ELECTRIFYING!

Very graphic, like modern art.

I rather think I like this E . I liked the elephants but I am blown away by these shots. These are fabulous. Do you see the dollar signs floating out of peoples houses in Ontario? :) B

Stacia said...

I like the contrast of the colorful sunset with the austere power lines. (And I love the elephants, too!) =>

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Birdman said...

What exciting skies. The POWER in each is outstanding!

taylorsoutback said...

Very contemporary art! Not to worry - I got the correct alphabet letter but posted during our off week when class on break...had to yank off real quick before our Miss Jenny noticed:o)

Judie said...

Shocking post, to be sure!! When I was younger, I always imagined them to be people from outer space, marching across the landscape.

edenhills said...

Electric lines are not something that I would think of as beautiful, but you've made them so. Great captures.

☆☆Mumsy said...

Oh I love your shots of these power plant! The sun set one is gorgeous.

Lowell said...

These are all quite interesting. But I have to say that to hear you went with "E" on a "D" day gave me a real shock!

Karen S. said...

Oh this sure bounces right off my computer...excellent burst of color it is electric in so many ways!

Susan said...

You've made something that is usually ugly, beautiful. Awesome!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love your take on E! The pictures are stunning!

Rose said...

These are beautiful...sometimes powerlines really add to a photograph.

anitamombanita said...

Love these graphic images. Ironically, like most other people, I suspect, I usually try to avoid the power lines in my images. But if you can't beat 'em, I say, shoot em!! :)

Pondside said...

That gorgeous sunset beyond the ubiquitous hydro lines - there's a story there.

VP said...

I didn't think that power lines could be so photogenic. Obviously the sunlight and your skills help a lot!

Francisca said...

Don't ask me to choose between elephants and electricals... but both posts are exciting! :-)

Lola said...

Superb ‘E’ post – great images!

Have a great weekend & look forward to *seeing* you soon.

Here’s mine

jeannette said...

Love your electrifying red pic!!

Andy said...

Hello.
Normally, I would say power lines are an eyesore, but these are great. I like the first one best. Your original "E" post was pretty awesome too. I'm happy the elephants are going to be able to roam more freely, even if not in complete freedom.
Thanks for sharing.

Eleven Roses And You

Jenny said...

Those power lines silhouetted against the sky are gorgeous.

So architectural and elegant!

I really enjoyed seeing your post this week.

It was quite exciting.

Thanks for linking up to the letter "E".
