WPC Structure: Man made

On our way back from our beach-walk on a hot summer’s day, we often rest in the shade under an old tree before tackling the long uphill walk to our house. We love lying back on the cool green grass, watching the clouds drift by. On this particular day when the photos were taken, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and we enjoyed the sight of the man made structures – electric high voltage wires against the backdrop of the amazing blue skies. It was the first time that we really took notice of the precision made structures that are used to convey electricity to our homes.

  1. Wonderful to see these pile on structures. Also unbelievable that the electricity moves up and down the lines to provide homes with electricity.

  2. Perfect take on the challenge. Loved the bottom right one, the symmetry.

  3. So waar, Hester. Ons sien nie altyd raak nie. Hierdie strukture fassineer my ook soms. As ek die dag kyk…

  4. Jy laat my, wat neig om net die mooi van die natuur te wil sien, nou sleg op my neus kyk….

    • 😀 Die mooi blou van die natuur is darem ook daar om die mens se strukture te komplimenteer,

  5. Ek verwonder my altyd goe hulle die konstruksies oprig. Hoogtevrees is nie ‘n opsien nie.
    Mooi foto’s

  6. Julle het sterk “pacemakers” Wha ha HAAAA!! 😉

    Nice structure! Good choice for the challenge, though was it safe going beneath the transmission lines?

    • Fortunately, there was a gap at the bottom that gave us access to crawl underneath without touching the structure. We are very cautious by nature 🙂

  8. Hester, ek het vir jou ń boodskap op my laaste post gelos, die een oor die honde. Lees asb, want ek het hulp nodig met iets.

  9. Ah die op die rug lê en staar na die hemel met klompie yster in die oog ekspedisie wat jy my van vertel het toe ek soortgelyke fotos geplaas het. Dit het goed gekom. Sien hierdie is anders as die kragpale wat ek afgeneem het

    • Hierdie is ‘n klein substasie hier onder in ons dorpie, ‘n “transformer” noem my man dit.

  10. I like the perpective in “wires3”

    • Thank you. It was a hair raising experience standing right under the structure and we got out as fast as possible 😁
