Power lines. You want to see a sour, depressed look on a photographer's face, ask about power lines. They ruin our photos. They drape across landscapes and clutter up our city shots.
We don't even see them anymore. I find an interesting house, building, or landscape, set up the shot, frame the scene and click. A couple more clicks in case I wobbled then I'm down the road. Later at home, I process the days photos and there they are. Power lines: the spoilers of breathtaking photos.
Here's a rock-faced house I found in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. I didn't see those power lines until I got back to the motel and downloaded the photos. They haunt us, they vex us.
But I think you'll see with the top photo that power lines may make an interesting subject in themselves. You may even find a way to incorporate them to enhance your scene.

Christmas Eve in a trailer park in Columbia, TN.
This was the first photo with my new camera that I liked. I was blown away by the clarity. If you click on the photo, you'll go to the photo on my Flickr page then if you click again, you'll see the photo in its original size. Notice the sharpness at the bottom of the tree. There's a child's scooter, looks like a broken pathway light, and a pumpkin. Also, lots of detail in the side of the trailer.
The original had more light to the left of the tree but I wanted the final photo to show the tree as the only light source.
