I've heard them called High Tension Wires (although that would apply to me too), Electrical Transmission Lines, High Voltage Lines, I call them Power Towers. I am fascinated with how many different designs there are for basically the same function, to transmit electricity from the power plant to the user. There are open designs made of metal strips and angles, A-frame designs of two solid angled columns, an inverted U shape, again of solid columns. Even the open framework style has several shapes, the most common is a single tower, but I've sem many with two towers and one or two cross members of the same open steel framework. Like utility poles, they often differ from the one on either side. When they turn a corner, they assume an asymmetrical design to counter the forces pulling them into the turn. I have not photographed many a beautiful landscape because these towers criss-crossed the landscape. So I made them the subject of a photo study turning their abundance into an asset.
