There isn’t really much of a rationale behind this – I just fancied constructing an electricity pylon for some reason. Who am I to argue?
I know pylons are considered by many to be a monstrous blot on the landscape. The view would be cleaner without them, of course, but, like many industrial structures, I can appreciate their presence. They’ve always possessed a strange personality to me. I’m wondering if this is rooted in an old advertisement from when I was very little, which showed pylons coming to life and striding across the landscape toward the sea, heralding the bright future of cleaner, more efficient energy generation. When I’d seen it enough times to no longer be slightly creeped out, I enjoyed it.
One of the nice things about creating a rather simple model like this is it means I can happy snap without ever leaving the house, and manipulate the weather as required. This was an excuse to focus on the latter:
As the sun sets, let’s hope these pylons don’t go walkabout any time soon.
