Very nice in mono, Leo.

The pylon seems a bit close to the building in my opinion.

There is a transformer station in the woods behind where we live, and there are plans to upgrade the facility and capacity, however, the local residents association have objected on the grounds that, while the existing power lines which go very near the housing are within the recommended limits, and also outside the recommended distance, the new proposals will increase the kilowattage to such an extent that the distance to the existing housing will be less that recommended...discussions, claims and counter-claims continue, with experts on both sides contradicting each other...

50m from the 400 KV (400000V) , I guess!
Jukka. PS I like those high voltage things , I think they are beautiful!

A great view point, Leo and the usual expertise with processing.

In answer to your question, I have to say:

At least 10ft further than the height of the pylon if it happens to be falling towards you, Leo. Wink

As my employment before retiring was working with a National Power Company, we never thought about this as a problem. If you consider people who work in power stations or in grid substations do not have a higher rate of cancerous diseases than the national figure. I think it is still open for debate.

As Ian (mac) says there's no conclusive evidence. There's more danger from air pollution.

A safe distance?

Great viewpoint and capture, Leo, enhances the feel of the pylon's domination 👍 I think it's debatable about the health risks, but I wouldn't want to live so close to one of these, bad for the health or not! 😬

Love the way those clouds framed that house as those clouds are protecting it to the safe distance, but are you safe or fallen to a big hole to take that pov...

Pylons always seem to be striding purposefully across the countryside to me. Wherever you are they will get you.Smile
