A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia
Denmark has 42,000 square miles of land and about 5.5 million people. Australia has 3 million square miles of land (i.e., 71 times more land than Denmark) and about 23 million people (4 1/2 times as many as Denmark). Assuming the costs of undergrounding the power lines per mile were similar in the two countries, to underground the entire Australian power supply, every Australian would have to pay about ten times as much as a Dane must pay to underground the Danish network. Good luck in persuading your fellow citizens to take on this cost.
Many new communities here put the wires underground. I wish towns would do so in historic districts!
They certainly can be a nuisance to the photographer!
But what would the birds sit upon in those long, treeless stretches of road around where I live? Plus, birds on a wire always make me think of music. 🎼
