Shadows of War in Vermont

Shadows of War

Straight out of the camera, I entitled this picture "Shadows of War" as that's what it made me think of as soon as I saw it. Of course those power lines drive me nuts but there were way too many of them to edit out so alas, there they stay!

 To see more pictures and read a little about the town where this shot was taken, please visit Charming Chester at The Distracted Wanderer, my new travel blog. 


  1. Another place to add to my list! Hope people rush over to 'The Distracted Wanderer' and see the rest, tis bloody lovely.

  2. Beautiful photo. Reminds me of the Civil War statue in Derby.

    I must catch up with my distracted wanderer friend.

    Work was really busy the past four days. (i.e. the never-ending Shelton Prom saga)

    I know, making excuses again.

  3. I don't know why any city uses poles nowadays. Underground is safer, prettier and less expensive in the long run.

    Despite the unsightly electric wires, the sky and silhouette are lovely!

    I like the lighting of that shot. Lends to the somber subject of war.

  5. Congratulations on the new blog. And that's a great shot, despite the power lines.

  6. Very nice shot.

    Hugs from So GA...

    Nice eye, I think the power-lines belong in the shot, because this is apart of our reality in "downtown" Vermont. The lines also speak of "war" being a "power struggle in the shadows", in this day-in-age it is the "power" of oil and diplomacy. The title fits! Great photo.


Thanks for visiting!
