Sunday Stills Challenge - Powerlines and Landscapes

So this week our challenge is to actually capture those pesky powerlines that always seem to be in the way of that otherwise great landscape shot. Funny, as soon as you're trying to get them, they are suddenly ellusive!
I've got this mountain practically in my back yard and the boyfriend drove me around hunting for powerlines. He mostly kept his laughing at me hanging out the window taking pictures to himself. Mostly.



On the way back home we passed this cow pasture. I was facing the sun so the closer ones were all washed out, but there is a powerline running right through the middle of it (I promise, it's really there!) and the little black cow standing up was watching us drive by and it was too cute.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Those are perfect shots, I love them! :) I was constantly eyeballing powerlines too, but was usually driving and unable to snap any! That mountain is beautiful!!!

Oww! They would have been excellent shots without those powerlines! :D Great Work! :)

I find even the houses in the second shot as annoying as the powerlines, but it's a great shot, as it makes a statement. It's so hard to photograph a natural landscape without some man made thing in the way.

Great job capturing the theme. I hate when those lines get in the way of fantastic shots like you have.

Excellent job. One of the few that actually have been understanding the concept. Love how you framed the first shot.

Love the mountain even if there is a stinkin' powerline in the way!
