Man or Nature?


So many times when I’ve stood on my deck and tried to take a photo of the water, I’ve cursed the hydro pole that mars the view.

This time I found the power lines an interesting contrast to the lines created by the tidal movement in the bay.

I still find the man-made power lines to be ugly, but here they emphasize the beauty of  the soft curvy lines of nature.

Man or nature? For me, it’s no contest.

  1. I suppose the power lines are a necessary evil. Cool shot, Anneli!

    • Thanks, Darlene. I was going to throw out the whole lot of them that I took, because of those damned power lines, but then I got looking at it from another perspective – lines and lines.


  3. Ok, this is beautiful. But let’s not lose the plot – hydro poles are nasty.

  4. This would make for a great design for a quilt and/or literal quilting pattern.

  5. A really great photo. Well, to me it’s maybe more like a painted picture. I like it a lot.

  6. I can see what you mean by lines and lines. Great shot! But I´d rather see the water without those lines. Here they are digging up the whole village right now to put the wires underground. They are making a big mess all over but once all is cleaned up it will look so much better.

  7. The way the photo looks, the power lines sort of look like they are black lines in the water along with the gorgeous multi-shaded blue lines of nature. Great shot.
    P.S. I know what you mean about obstructions in a shot. There are many man-made obstructions here, too. It’s what I get for living near a city.

  8. I think they make the photo more interesting. The lines add an element of art.
