Power(ful) Lines

Power(ful) Lines No. 1 : Bossy, CH

Despite living on the edge of fields and what most would consider countryside, the farmland, pastures and vineyards of Switzerland often run up against towns and cities. Power lines are not an uncommon sight in these parts, so when you take pictures, you have to make the best of it. I thought these images were pretty powerful (pun intended) in terms of the vertical and horizontal lines.

I love the angles and dimensions. I'm assuming the third pic was taken from the French side looking at the Swiss side.

The second and third ones are great! I like seeing power lines. I'm not sure why. I think it's the way the lines head off into the distance.

Cele: Thanks! And you're right: The third picture was taken from the French side of the border looking into Switzerland.

Maya: Thanks! I think the line of sight is also what appeals to me with power lines.
