I used to pass through this intersection daily over seven years ago. This scene was my morning routine. This morning (9Aug10), I was able to recapture a bit of that beauty. This is a very rural intersection, so it is possible to sit here until a car comes up behind you. I spent about five minutes. I just love this spot… it has served me well through the years, but this is the first opportunity I have had to capture its excellence. Not for everyone, but there is just some sort of consuming force existing within power lines and poles. They are an ESSENTIAL ingredient of the free world, and not one of us is free from the “power” they hold over us. Besides, in a sense, they can be a bit beautiful.

    beautiful colours, and composition is great!

  • Thanks Aleksandra! I love this particular spot. My first sunrise in I don’t know how long, and yes, Mother Nature provided this beautiful painting! Thanks for the comment!

    There does seem to be a contradiction but I see manmade objects in the most remote canyons here. It is almost impossible to avoid. This is a beautiful sunrise and great mix of nature and manmade.

  • It is impossible for man to run away from the manmade. Maybe that is why we try to visit other planets? I do, however, find beauty in many manmade objects, and when they look like this shot, I smile. Thanks for the great comment and the fave, Lori!

    I, too, appreciate manmade things. Make-up is a biggie on my list. LOL

  • You are too funny, LOL!

    Das this is a great shot and your words truly enhance the image…well done!

  • Hey! Thanks Jim! I used to love going here, even if it was just on the way to work. There aren’t very many places where I feel compelled to turn off my music, but this is one of them. The sounds are as beautiful as the scenery. Thanks for the great comment Jim!

    Truly wonderful capture! I love the light and vibrant colors! Great story, too!!!

  • Thank You, Ainsley! I appreciate your awesome comment. I feel a magnetism to this spot. If I could, I would camp here. This picture and story only barely begin to display the excellent man vs nature dance that is in constant motion in this very scene. Real peace, though, comes when man is only an inanimate representation, and not the tyrannical monster of chaos. In those instances, Mother Nature’s display of all-powerful splendor, her exacting yet gentle domination, is able to be taken into a light that can truly be appreciated by man.

    what an absolutely gorgeous capture & the description is wonderful

  • :) Thank You, Kimberly, for your very kind comment! I try to match up my photographic work with written words, when I can… I enjoy the challenge. I am happy that you like this picture, but I just re-read my description and realized it could use a grammatical make-over… Thanks again for looking!
