A is for Antennas

A tall and slender antenna demands a tall and slender photo :-)
Only, there are many other antennas here: Two radar domes, various mobile phone antennas and a number of other devices which I don't have a clue as to what are.

Today's post is an entry in round SEVEN (Congratulations Denise!) of ABC Wednesday, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt. For more, you can log on via the ABC site.

All those mysterious devices always fill me with a bit of dread; like, what are they picking up, and what are they emitting?
But your photo lends the whole thing some beauty and grace and takes it to "new heights."

Her er det klart for god kommunikasjon ser det ut til :) Pent bilde av nettverket, og så blå og fin himmel da, det savner jeg her borte nå, ikke for mye pent vær akkurat. Skifter fort, ikke før solen kommer fram så kommer det mørke skyer igjen. Men men, så er det bare :) Ha en fin dag Rune.

Jøss, runde 7! Det står det respekt av! Jeg tror jeg gir meg etter runde 3 på ABC i ord og bilder.
Dette er antenneanlegget som ligger ute på fjellet med deg som jeg ser fra stuen min??? Jeg glemmer alltid hva det fjellet heter... Liafjellet??
Det er rart når vi kjører på Sotra og kan se denne litt nærmere.. Da virker den så enorm stor. Jeg har aldri vært borte til den, men har veldig lyst.
Hva gjør du på da i dette "flotte" sommerværet foruten å blogge;)??

Gry said...

Stilig bilde, og ekstra flott med den blå himmelen!

Power to all the people Rune.

I'm with Dina! Great photo though! The 'star wars' expression,

"Beam me up Scotty"

comes to mind!

Mar said...

Nice tall antenna. I love the "ball" too!
A is for aerial

Sylvia K said...

Great shot and so much a part of everyone's world today. Yep, "Beam me up, Scotty" was the first thing I thought of, too. Hope your week is going well, Rune!

lovely shot - I'm going less high-tech this week.

Reader Wil said...

Wow! What an enormous device! How tall is it?
Interesting to see so many familiar names in the next round.
Next week I have a post about your hometown for B. At first I thought I can't do that for all the Norwegian bloggers know more of Bergen, and especially you. However I enjoyed my stay in your city immensely so that I ventured to tell something about Bergen, albeit from the point of view of a tourist. I hope you'll forgive me if I make any mistakes. But that's next week.

Now that's an antenna! Great A for this week.

Anna said...

Oj, vilket oväntat ordval! Men bra!
Hjärtliga hälsningar,
Anna
A som i Anna!

Beverley Baird said...

That is quite the antenna! Great post for A.

John said...

In today's world, a necessary eye-sore.

Great photo! That is obviously a prime location for capturing radio waves and antennae have their own beauty. Technology is a tribute to man's intelligence, imagination and development.
(I deleted my previous comment - too many mistakes :-/)

A massive tower! It's great that the building is there for contrast.

This is huge!!!
Faboulos picture, Rune!
Ha en fin dag:)

photowannabe said...

That's what I call tall. I love the variety of anntena you show.

Annelie said...

I'm glad they exist,or else I might not have seen your pictures!

Paula Scott said...

What a great choice to kick off Round 7 with! Insects have antennas too though (although harder to capture as an image).

Carolyn Ford said...

All those mysterious devices are becoming bundled more and more into one...my daughter has GPS, phone, music, internet...and so on...all on one device. She laughs and says at least she only has to charge up one device instead of multiple gadgets. And, to think those "poles" in the air make it all happen...astounding!

MorningAJ said...

Fantastic shot. Great sky.

peripheralperceptions said...

Definitely one BIG antennae! Love the way the size contrast between it and the shorter one really drives home how tall it is in comparison to the domes and ground.

Leslie: said...

It's always worth coming by to see your photos - stupendous!!! :D

Dimple said...

That is one tall antenna! It looks rather space-like, as some others have noted. Nice, well-balanced photo!
Thanks for the visit!

Hildred and Charles said...

Great capture and beautiful inits own way against the blue of the sky. I am awed by today's technology and communications.

Tumblewords: said...

Beautiful sky, nice composition. I wonder if the tall antenna is sending or receiving - and what? Interesting.

K(Banterings of a Basketcase) said...

the sky behind os gorgeous. Its neat to see how every country, everywhere, had technology forcing itself upon nature.

Jama said...

That's a tall antenna! We have lots of skyscrapers here, most antenna are installed on top of them.

Reader Wil said...

Thanks for your answer.
BTW , my burglar story was partly made up by me. The end was not true.
Sorry...

Pervaiz said...

I visit your blog first time. It is so nice and lovely. I like your idea of blog.

Thanks.

In my world, such things are mysteries and I look past them. Not you!
Thanks for the new focus...

nonizamboni said...

Hello again, Rune.
These are mysterious and definitely tall. We have three towers in our village that serve the Twin Cities and always remind me we are indeed in the 21st century.

black eyed susans kitchen said...

One just went up at the edge of our community garden...with all that grows tall there...it is a little out of place. Good choice for A.

kml said...

How beautiful the sky is - it shows off those antennas quite well!

onangelwings said...

Great A theme. I would never have thought of this.

Irene said...

Majestetisk konstruksjon dette her ... likte utsnittet, fikk fremhevet høyden på antenna!

ρομπερτ said...

How very impressive a sight ! Please have a wonderful Thursday.

ChrisJ said...

I don't much like antennas. They are a necessary evil I guess. But you have manged to make that one beautiful. Tall and slender. Say hi to the sunshine and rain for me in Bergen -- also all the beautiful flowers. I just recently went over many of our photos from last year again.

Mama Zen said...

Cool shot!

Dagrun said...

En solid antenne! Sol i Bergen altså, eller?

Jeg er langt nordpå nå, og her er det bare regn. (Jeg kommer til å være borte fra nett i noen dager nå, btw.)

Håper sommeren er fin, hvor du/ dere nå er.

Dagrun said...

ps og takk for at du sa fra om trykkleifein i overskriften den dagen!!

Cheryl said...

Wonderful shot! And a great word to start the Round 7.

Ann said...

Rgar's a very tall antenna, can you receive waves from Sweden?

Luckaa said...

It is realy big antenna!

Abraham Lincoln said...

Wonder who climbs it to replace the blinking bulb?

EG Wow said...

This spot looks very well connected to the outside world.

Marie said...

Very funny, you adapted your photo to the object photographed :-)))

Tulsa Gentleman said...

So, you make a post every day using the letters in turn? So today is A and you post A things; Apple,Antenna, Avocado, etc. and then tomorrow it is Bread,Beef, Beer, Brandy, etc. Do this for 26 days then start over? I think it gets harder as time goes by. Hmm, will I try it, I don't know. How does it go for you?

Leo said...

amazing photo! :)

Barbara Martin said...

For some reason this photo reminded me of Robert Heinlein. However, I do like the angle you took this photo at.
