When I look at the my photograph I imagine each of the power pylons combine to form a network of supports, holding up the canopy that is the clouds.   This additionally anchors them, from floating free in the sky, to the ground.

I imagine that without them, the sky could well continue rising until it is out of reach of us poor mortals.  Taking with it the life giving clouds full of rain to nourish the land and what meagre protection from the hot sun they can offer.
