Wow, so many insulators on that pole. There in the forest, the wood fits in so much nicer than the big metals one.
I remember wooden utility poles in the alleys of my childhood Chicago.

I've never seen a power pole without cross arms.

Terrific capture, Karl. It doth look out of place in the midst of the forest, though!

I've never seen a power pole quite like this one!

Tanya Breese said...

very different!

Those antique insulators make a great looking pattern on the pole.

The insulators certainly do catch my eye.

Never seen a pole like this one but I find it rather attractive.

Those glass insulators wouldn't last five minutes here in the States. Alas!
