Shame about the power lines.

The view from the nearer carriageway was worse. There's sound baffles all along the roadside which obscure much more of the horses.

I'll bet neither the power lines nor the sound baffles were in the proposal sketches.

No. But it's still an impressive sight!

Of course, they're spectacular, but when we see shit in person our brains have a way of discarding all the superfluous crap... like our own nose.
It's only when we pick up a camera and try to compose a shot that we take this stuff into account.

I'm amazed how many slides I have of beautiful scenery my ex took, with trash in the immediate foreground she never noticed when taking the picture.

You're right, there, Bruce. My dad taught me to look carefully all around the picture in my viewfinder before clicking the shutter. I still do, sometimes ...

It's called composition.

And sometimes it's impossible.

A rub down of that magnitude would be a chore, I reckon.

A former tree-trimmer w/a bridge inspection truck (vvv) could probably make a living doing that once a year.

Cool.

Someone has built one of those horse-made-outta-horseshoes things and placed it on our courthouse square. You've seen 'em before, but, I'll try to get a pic sometime before it goes away.

The neeps and tatties seller made that poor horse stand there so long vines grew on it?
