Wired sky

The evening's rain clouds limned by a rosy sunset, a little haze from vehicular pollution, and the ubiquitous power cables crisscrossing over your head. Welcome to Metro Manila.

Pam said...

A very cool shot and amusing title, Hilda. I can always count on you for a smile.
Have a nice day.

Great SkyWatch shot Hilda, power lines and all.

James said...

Great photo, the clouds remind me of some sort of animal and the wire reminds me of a cage.

J Bar said...

Good shot.

Photo Cache said...

love the shot, the inclusion of electric wires has given this shot another dimension in composition.

Jacob said...

You said a lot with one photo and a few words.

robert said...

Seems as if there's much energy to be found in your sky.

A wonderful Friday for you.

Louise said...

Catchy title, and the clouds are magnificent!

i kinda like this abstract-looking photograph ... technology criss-crossing nature. have a good weekend, hilda.

Ebie said...

The lines made it more a unique sky! IT is glowing with colors!

AL said...

Hey Hilda, on a photo shoot this week, I had the same feeling, "those wires are everywhere. can't avoid them. Might as well incorporate them into the photo." Lovely sky shot!

Bigla ko po tuloy namiss ang Pinas hehehe.. Thank you very much po for visiting and for your warm comment on my first entry..

I love how the cable lines accentuated the color of the sky, so pretty!

Jim K said...

never really notice the wires until its time to shoot. they do divide the picture nicely though.

The sky is as wired as «Louis» will be when he finishes the four-shot latte he just made for himself.....

Halcyon said...

Greetings from Australia.
Nicely done - all too often the power lines spoil a photo, but here, they have added to it. The crisp, clear wires and the haziness of the clouds make for an interesting shot.

Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comments.
May you have an enjoyable weekend.
Cheers.

That's a creative photo. Very nice!

I like it too, the wires keep it from being 'just another cloud photo'!

VioletSky said...

I often refuse to take a photo with power lines in it - but then I see a shot like this and realize those lines can add a whole new element to the picture.

Lois said...

Even with those power cables it is still pretty!

FA said...

The power lines make for an interesting skywatch. Have a blessed weekend, Hilda.

Regina said...

Its a great sky and shot. Never mind the wires:).
Have a great weekend!

I like the glow on the edges of the dark clouds!

Marites said...

I like glow of the skies but not the ubiquitous clouds marring the view. My skywatch is up too.

i really hate those wires! i remember one of my earliest blog posts was about the chaotic wires in the country.

i actually have a favorite shot/view from our pagudpud trip but there were wires from that view.

George said...

I have the same problem with cables here in Tennessee. But that rose-tinted cloud is still beautiful.

Linnea W said...

You have a wired sky too! Cool. Thanks for visiting mine!
