Old 69kV Disconnect switch

My work takes me to a lot of substations and some power plants. I actually find the infrastructure to be pretty photogenic. Substations in particular are full of interesting lines and perspective but you don't usually find this much color. This is an old disconnect switch that must have some copper in it that has corroded green. The steel has rusted red. The white painted pole in the foreground contrasts with the dark brown glass insulator disks.
