Old Electricty Pole...

Old Electricty Pole...
...that has been replaced for some reason.
This is the end that was in the ground, showing some of the heavy timbers that sometimes (quite often!) need to be fastened on the bottom of poles to stop them sinking into the peat. There seems to be metal straps running from the cross timbers to the lower end of the pole to help stop it leaning over also.
It's laying beside the road waiting to be disappeared.
Taken from fast moving bus on a very rainy and gloomy morning.
The lense fore-shortens distances, and I am shooting at a crazy angle, so the pole is actually a lot longer than it looks!
