There is a very futuristic vibe about this photo. The desert and its sky are pale, hues reflecting the sun and dust of the surroundings. In the foreground, the power line stands straight and bold in sharp contrast to the curves of the mountains. The colors are on the exact ends of the spectrum: black wires and bright white ceramic coatings on the insulators.

The pole is a monument to modernization encroaching to all ends of the earth, even the quietest reaches of the desert. The stark contrast highlights the differences between the natural and built environments, rather than just letting them simply blend together.

Thanks to photographer Jarek Tuszynski for sharing his work with creative commons.
