Pylons as giants

I like electricity plylons. I know that might seem odd in someone like me, who walks the countryide so much, but these giant structures in the landscape give it a surreal edge that appeals to me. A bit like Don Quixote's windmills, that he saw in his mind's eye as ogres.

Of course, I wouldn't be happy about them too much in natural beauty spots (such as The Highlands), and I wouldn't want to live under one, but, yes, I do have a soft spot for them. Their webbed arangement strikes me as high design.

This photo is part of City Daily Photo's theme day for March - which is on the subject of electricity.
