Taken from inside a moving bus.
It was a wonderful sunset and I ddin't mind the wires and towers. Later I thought maybe I could "shoehorn" it in a challenge... so here it is...

Messed with ISO during the shoot, and ended up having a hard time to control noise.

I had its first version submitted before ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Louis posted his thread about "power lines", so I'm not pulling it out now because of that... :~)

The juxtaposition of the natural Sun against the manmade technology is very effective in provoking thought and emotions. The Sun is round, a circle with no discernable beginning or end and yet science would tell us otherwise. The electrical towers and wires cut across the landscape in a slicing pattern, crisscrossing with efficiency and perhaps just a hint of disruption which is echoed by the cloud patterns.

Great silhouette, beautiful clouds.. I really like how the sun is perfectly round and filtering through that beautiful tree. That said, there is too much happening in the picture to make it really stand out! 6
