22 Landscape Photographs That Use Power Lines to Great Effect

Share:  

One of the big challenges of landscape photography is incorporating elements into a landscape that you perhaps might prefer were not there. One of the common visual pollutants in our world is power lines running through pristine country. We think these photographers have made a great effort of incorporating power lines or even making them a dominant part of their compositions. Share your own efforts in the comments!

Who would have thought that something so ugly could be made to look beautiful. I’ll look at these things in a different light now. Some beautiful symmetry in wonderful pictures. Congrats.

All wonderfully done captures. I want to share a photo I was able to capture as a storm was moving in. The marvelous light highlighted the lines and poles against the the dark skyhttps://cdn.lightstalking.com/wp-content/uploads/album/10830/2883-500×333-150×150.jpg

I have an obsession with power lines and have quite a collection of my shots!!! I would love to share them but how??

The efforts by the photographers whose work you have displayed here are superb. Just think how much cleaner, natural and beautiful they would be without all the man-made clutter and distraction.
