    Noticed these guys working on some high voltage power lines on my way home the other morning. I circled the block to get a shot and as soon as they saw me snapping some pics they all got in the bucket and came down VERY quickly! :confused: Almost like they didn't want anyone shooting pics of them working?! :meh: Got one or two decent ones. Definately a job I would not sign up for seeing as how this is about 100-125 feet above the roadway surface, yikes.

    I'm sure for safety reasons they're all required to be in the "bucket" at all times when working at altitude. Those pics could have the potential to cost some their jobs...
