Day 146 – A necessary evil?

Sunset at one of my favorite bushland areas…I purposely shot from this angle to show the power lines in the background. They’ve invaded this natural space, imposing a very bold presence in the cutout area right through the lush greenery. I am thankful for all the modern technology and ease of living we are afforded in this day and age…but I do find myself asking from time to time, at what cost does it come?

  1. Beautiful shot of the sunset!!! Love the colors behind the switch grass. Power lines have always been intrusive to me. I know it’s necessary, but I always hate to see a beautiful tree butchered in order to clear the power lines. On the other hand, people should think about that before they plant a large tree right under them!

  2. Yes this is a beautiful photograph! I have been sitting here for the last 10 minutes pondering your question and I cannot come up with an answer. I know there is non economic cost of owning smartphones and televisions in regards to communication and how family time is spent now a days. But then I think maybe the cost does not out weigh the benefits? I don’t know but your post definitely has me thinking!

  3. what a beautiful shot. In areas where the power lines are hidden underground, i guess we don’t have pause to reflect as much as if we saw them daily. You have so much greenery all around, which is wonderful in itself.
