Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

A connection from the hill tops.

Communications tower, Windgap woods, country Kilkenny

The woods at Windgap, County Kilkenny, sit above the valley we live in. A walk through the woods offers some wonderful views of the Landscape below.

The wood is also the home to the local communications tower, high in the woodlands it is hard to reach by car and one evening last week I noticed the service people driving through the fields to get to the building below the tower.

I feel that the contrast between the landscape and this tower is what I really hope to show here, but of course with out it I would not be able to show you these images?

  1. Interesting…Our landscape does take on another look with “technology!”

    • Hello Navery 🙂

      Yes I think so, it’s all a balance I guess :), I don’t have too much of a problem with it but the contrast is very noticeable 🙂

  2. Everything is give and take.
    I hated seeing the electric wires up and down our street. Now I hardly even notice them. Our eyes see what they want.

    • Hello. That’s a great point. Yes after a while we see everything as just a part of what we are use to.

    • Hello Rene.

      Oh that sound like a great idea, do you mean it is built to look like the trees ?

      • Yes, or at least camouflaged to look like them. 🙂

    The contrast between the shots is certainly quite jarring! So you achieved your stated intention Nigel. But I receive great beauty in the comms tower – if it allows you to beam your wonderful images and ideas around the globe!
