The Pylon

Power Pylon, Red Hills Road, Massey

Power Pylon, Red Hills Road, Massey

This Pylon is part of the major high voltage transmission line shown in yesterday’s post, but further north, at Red Hills Road, Massey. Unlike most of the pylons which have insulators of dark ceramic material, this one has glass insulators which glisten as the sunlight gets caught in them.

For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

    This is great. It almost looks like abstract art.
