I seem to find electrical and telecoms infrastructure to be quite a fascinating subject when combined with a landscape or environment context. This very scary apparatus in a remote corner of a New Mills field is part of an elaborate interconnection where a separate double circuit power line branches off at 90 degrees. This pylon takes the three phases from the near side and passes them under the main line then up to the line that branches off. These cables are carrying more than 100,000 volts and they were only about 15 feet above the ground!

The image has been treated with an orton effect and texture layers.
