Without this sort of transportation where would the modern world be? With miles and miles of cables suspended on pylons criss crossing our countries, transporting electricity from power plant to sub-station and consumer. Some people think they are ugly while others see them as a thing of beauty (there is even the Pylon Appreciation Society).

I chose this location as it had two power lines crossing each other heading off in different directions. This is weird as both of the lines end up at the same sub-station just a few miles away, one line taking the direct route while the other takes a more scenic route. The location wasn't too bad to get to, about a 20 minute walk across farmers fields and down overgrown paths.
