I seem to be jumping all over the place this week – after looking for lines earlier this week, today I was excited to be walking somewhere where there were pylons and I could get up close to them and take some photos. Before this project I would not have even considered that they were worthy of a photograph but they are a really interesting contrast with the natural environment.
The first shot – I tried to capture the pylon on the diagonal.
A change of lens – my wide angle lens and a change of perspective … what great repeating patterns it offers from directly underneath … this is definatley a case of a busy cloudy sky add interest to the photo, a grey sky would have be very dull.
My final shot, I moved away with the idea of capturing the whole pylon and the sense of scale … I wish I had a fellow human with me whom could have stood underneath to show the scale, but I love the fact I was able to capture another pylon in the distance directly between this ones legs – a sense of perspective is an interesting event to capture…
As I was leaving the area, I was able to focus on my more pylon to get a sense of scale. It is an interesting landscape – not the kind I plan to visit on holiday… but surprisingly peaceful through the lens!
