Post-modern Totem

A pylon stands erect in a field somewhere in Cockerham in Lancaster, UK; its angular steelwork and stretched cables conjure strange geometric shapes for the eye to discover and its grey façade appears impervious to all weather.

And surrounding its concreted stance at set intervals, other pylons run away in endless lines upon lines, their taut wires spooling out across the fields, hills, villages and towns in every direction, for as far as you can see: the perfect representation of a post-modern totem to our electrical God…

*Shot on a Panasonic Lumix G9 M4/3 mirrorless camera using a Panasonic 100-300mm f/4-5.6 MEGA O.I.S lens with settings at ISO-200, aperture at f/6.3, spot metering mode and an exposure time of 1/250 seconds*
