Waiting for Sunset, Pylon of Messina.

[font=sans-serif]The Pylons of Messina are two free-standing steel towers, the Sicilian one in Torre Faro and the Calabrian one in Villa San Giovanni. [/font]

[font=sans-serif]They were used from 1955 to 1994 to carry a 220 kilovolt (150 kilovolt until 1971) power line across the Strait of Messina.[/font]

I really like this shot a lot - great color and mood.
This was posted in the wrong forum. Manmade objects go in the Travel and Culture forum.

Welcome to NSN! This is excellent! Well composed, with very interesting features and. The mist is wonderful as are the shining lights. The tower really makes a statement-thanks for the explanation. I like the overall colors too, for a very pretty mood.

Welcome! A very striking image, well composed, with a great mood in the fading light. Very nicely done, Giuseppe.

Nice arrangement of lights and colors.
A great photograph is absorbed by the eyes and stored in the heart.
