The play of sun on the wires

.

At 3:30 pm last Saturday the last rays of sun made the power lines shine for a brief moment. 
Even a row of insulator posts ( ? -- just guessing) seemed to be suddenly glowing.
It was kind of creepy.
.
This is the view from the west side of my village's hill.
The Electric Company station sits in the valley.
Sometimes I like to pretend the cables are a ski lift in the Swiss Jura instead of high tension wires.
.
P.S. A previous post explains how modern Hebrew got a word for modern electricity.

a beautiful observation of light... I am often fascinated by the light on electrical wires, especially near sunset...here the glow gold. Shabbat Shalom.

Lovely photo! I've often had the same "ski lift" thought about the wires that dance across the San Gabriel foothills above Pasadena.
