Electricity/CDP Theme Day/Sky Watch

 Electricity at Sunset #1

Today is March 1 and City Daily Theme Day. This month's theme is ELECTRICITY.

Usually I try to avoid wires in my photos but sometimes they actually add something positive to a photo.

I too do not like having wires in photos but here you really made them work for you. I guess the secret is to make them the main subject of the photo. Well done.

Hmmm... The sky does it all! We had a great big red ball of fire yesterday evening but... no electrical lines in the sky!

(I'm not sure it is resolved but when I tried to click on your blog via the portal yesterday, I had an error message).

Super charged photos. Brilliant theme day!

beautiful.

Halcyon said...

I think the lines add something to your shots. The silhouettes make the fantastic colors of the sky stand out even more.
Happy March!!

Rose said...

Oh, these are lovely...and I think wires are just part of life and kind of like a lot of them...though there are certain times when I really wish they weren't where there.

Afraid of getting your wires crossed?

Very nice images for Theme Day!

Now that is an electric sunset! Gorgeous.

Michelle said...

It is usually pretty hard to make electrical line look pretty, but with that gorgeous red sunset I think you accomplished the impossible. :)

RedPat said...

More super sunset shots from you. And the wires are perfect for the day.

David Thomas said...

Nice designs. Electricity should have some red in it.

La Principessa Errante said...

These are gorgeous. Not only the sunsets and the light, but your framing of the lines and poles, very industrialist meets romantic.

see you there! said...

I think the lines are interesting, like the first (closer) photo the best.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

George said...

I usually don't like power lines in sky photos, but your composition, especially in the first and third photos, cause them to add to the beauty of the sky.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Love your wires. You are right they add to the photo.

I live in an urban area it is hard to take a pic without wires so I don't worry about them too much any more.

Jack said...

Marvelous, EG. The first and third work best for me. And, yes, you do need the wires in these images.

Randy said...

Beautiful color.

Gillian Olson said...

Love those electric skies!

Ebie said...

The sky is electrified by the colors!

LOVELY photos

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

These wires make a great pattern as a way of
capturing the glow of your sky -

Liz said...

I was in total agreement with you about wires in sky shots. I avoid them all the time... until a brilliant landscape photographer I knw posted an amazing shot utilising the electricity wires perfectlt. I have since changed my opinion but I am yet to capture a shot like that worthy of posting.

Beautiful shots making great use of the wires!

What gorgeous shots, each so filled with vibrancy and energy, energy in many forms...not just from the wires.

Spectacular shots. Really like the colors in that first shot... very dramatic!

Genie said...

I am one of those people who loves the electric wires because of the linear quality so I really like this shot. That gorgeous sky is simply icing on the cake. Great shot. genie
