OMG!!!!!

ANother bucket list photo, I've seen it done a few times on here so it's nothing new. But I did feel slightly scared laying down (in long, wettish grass), with my camera pointing skywards to get this shot! Three photos and I scrambled to my feet for a hasty getaway before I either got electrocuted, arrested or fined by Eastern Electricity for trespassing!!!

Another b & w conversion by Nik Silver Efex... love it!

PP- 4,5,6th Feb
This is an amazing prospective. Good for you. Fav.

Great shot!

Awesome capture, you did great! The lines are super cool!
posted February 2nd, 2013  
Yay, well done you! It is a scary thing to be under them, isn't it? Top marks for going to laying-down lengths for the shot!
posted February 2nd, 2013  
Great shot. The sky behind is an interesting backdrop.

He ho, just another mad photographer getting a perfect shot and turning something into wonderful art!
posted February 2nd, 2013  
Turned out great
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Well Jackie, I did one like this way back when, but I love the huge contrast you've achieved. Tell me, is the black of the pylons and wires achieved in Efex Pro? I have been debating whether to get it with myself, and your answer may just sway me one way or t'other! Another fav m'dear
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Wow! This so coooool! I've never even thought of getting underneath pylons for a shot like this (I didn't even know the view looked like this) Creative and awesome shot! FAV!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Awesome! I've seen these shots before too and always wanted to do one. You're going to be my inspiration to be a tresspasser one of these days. ;)
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Beautiful lines!!!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
@tryeveryday - thanks! This just sort if happened today while I was planning to get some sunset photos..... I've been eyeing up pylons for a while but they often seem to be in inaccessible places, or guarded by fences. This one was just off a car park (in a country park!) no fence, just a warning with electricity and frazzled wire symbols (?!) on it!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
@seanoneill - thanks Sean! I think because it was a bright day, and the golden hour, the photo came out well anyway. But yes, Efex Pro was used, I've just been playing with the presets ( as here) but bet you'd be more whizzy dizzy with it.... I am very, very tempted!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Brilliant shot with amazing perspective.
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Superb! Well done you. I think this is one shot that, for me, will never get near the bucket! Fav xx
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Whoa!......Incredible pov here! Fav : )

Hio Hip horray for Jackie S

Amazing shot!!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
so cool! love it!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
OH WOW!!! I must try this.. FAV FAV FAV!!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
@cheribug - it's scary but so daring too..... yes, give it a go! My advice though would be to pick a time when the ground is dry..... long wet grass is not great for lying down in!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
@fannyb - should have had insurance, 365 has a lot to answer for I tell you!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
beautiful shot, ncie pov and lines!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Perfect composition and symmetry. Not easy when you're upside down!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Love the symmetry. I've wanted to try this for ages! Fav!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Fav! Great job! Glad you came out if it safe and sound!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
I've always wanted to take a shot like this! Amazing! fav!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
@kwiksilver @pinky_promise @orangecrush - thank you all kind folk for the favs! You wouldn't believe that a granny with a dodgy arthritic hip would be lying around in wet grass for a photo would you now!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Great shot! And brave too!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Shockingly good!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
@taffy @nestortrillo - thanks guys! I can't quite believe I actually did this now! Better not tell my Mum, she'd have a fit!!!!!!!
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Amazing shot. I've thought of doing this but haven't been game yet : ) One day.....
posted February 3rd, 2013  
Bravo, I love your lines and your contrasts on this x
posted February 3rd, 2013  
a wonderful perspective. great effort, jackie. because this is one item in the bucket list that shall remain on the bucket list. i'm living vicariously through you. and congrats on PP! yay!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Perfect symetry here. Glad you made it out alive!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Cool! I know just where I could try this!! Great idea!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Well executed without being electrocuted.
I have taken many pylon shots and find them fascinating. You are quite safe so long as you don't climb up it!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Thumbs up!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Congrats on making the PP.....What a fabulous idea and it turned out great!!
posted February 4th, 2013  
fav......this is excellent!
don't you love Silver Effex?!?! I use it often.
posted February 4th, 2013  
Excellent! I think I will be download the Nik software - everyone seems to be using it.
posted February 4th, 2013  
Wonderful and daring shot Jackie - now come on over here, they are doing things to all our huge pylons which run across the fields and you could probably bat your eyelids at the men in hats who go up and down in sort of platforms on pulleys and get a shot looking down from the top!! LOL!! (and congrats)
posted February 4th, 2013  
@tishpics - haha, don't tempt me (with men in hard hats I mean!!)
posted February 4th, 2013  
Awesome capture!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Thats Great...I can almost hear the buzzing!! FAVed!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Very neat perspective and I love the black and white!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Awesome shot! Well done!
posted February 4th, 2013  
Fav! Fantastic concept, POV, and in black and white-- awesome.
posted February 5th, 2013  
Great pic!! I have always thought about this POV but never made it ...thanks for inspiration!!
posted February 5th, 2013  
Great POV.
posted February 5th, 2013  
Love it. In my hubby's youth he used to paint pylons for a living and somewhere, sadly not in his posession, there is a photo of him doing a head stand on the top of one ..........MADNESS!! he loves this alternative view!!
posted February 5th, 2013  
OMG indeed, congrats on the top 20, Jackie :-)
posted February 8th, 2013  
Well deserved into T20 :0))

@asutherland1964 @claireuk @soboy5 @paula365 - thank you all so much....can't believe it's there!
posted February 9th, 2013  
@pixiemac . Head stand on a pylon, now that is daring! Don't think it's something I'll be trying though!
posted February 9th, 2013  
Awesome geometry! Nicely balanced!
posted February 10th, 2013  
That is one cool shot. I've never seen it done before, so I'm a super impressed newbie. :-)
Before I began seeing the world through "365 eyes", I always thought these things were quite ugly, but now I see beauty in their symmetry.

Next time I'm close enough to one, I may try this. We usually have easy access to them here in California. Dirt roads run alongside them for the maintenance crews and I don't think there are any No Trespassing signs...but then I wasn't looking for them. LOL

Fav!
