AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Beauty of Power Lines?

The much maligned power lines - destroyers of scenic beauty!
Is there a possibility that they may be beautiful as a focus of a photo?
These power lines are at Bittern.
And I thought they cast some rather artistic shadows.

Poor power lines
Maligned crows from metal worlds
Who need new beauty

I would say 'rough beauty'... :)
Happy Sunday!

That's an interesting one.

Ah, beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. Yet, this electro-mechanical was not designed to be beautiful, its function dictated its design. Yet, the coiled up metal does have its own style - I like the shapes although may be in the, art in gray is what it has become...

Interesting shadows are everywhere, as we have all learned!

I like this shot, and your poetry.

Leovi said...

Yes, I like this interesting picture, beautiful composition of shapes.

Never would have thought of power lines having beauty. You seem to find it in places no one else does. Very nicely done.

Norma Ruttan said...

Yes, you do have a positive eye for what is beauty! well said and captured!

Those who look for beauty always find it, sometimes in the strangest places!
