Photo's and info submitted by Kenbo:
I thought I would send you these photos because when I saw the situation originally, I nearly crashed my car.
Driving home in the dark I knew they had started work on the new Kincardine bridge over the river Forth. But what I saw was the barge in the photo partly lit up directly under what I knew was 275Kv lines. They looked to be touching.
I had to go back and have a look in the day-light and took my camera. In reality the work was going on about 50meters up stream from the towers and the top of the rig was about 10 - 15 meters bellow the lines so in reality it was just an illusion from the road they are no where near to each other at all. I did walk up to the 250Kv tower to get more photos but the battery in my camera had run out.

Let's face it, these days if you're not young, you're old - Red Green grin
