Even in the heavily industrialised landscapes around Connah's Quay on the estuary of the River Dee in North Wales you can still find corridors of natural habitat, co-existing in a kind of harmony with factories, power plants, roads and, of course, electricity pylons, channeling the lifeblood of our technological society around the country like veins and arteries circulating blood through a body.
So as my wife Liz and I were enjoying a stroll on the Wales coastal path along the banks of the Dee on a beautiful spring afternoon I decided to embrace the pylons (photographically speaking only!) and included them in a series of images, juxtaposing and contrasting the natural world with the manmade.
I wonder, if I were to walk this path again in a hundred years, would those pylons still be standing?
I know the trees would!
