Power lines ... you may not have noticed looking thru a small lens or at the LCD, especially with teh bright sun in your eyes.

Sensor problems are generally dark dots or bright dots (bad pixels), or in rare cases perfectly straight dark or white vertical lines in the image -- maybe horizontal but that's really really rare (lines are bad row or column drivers, or saturated pixels).

Power lines ... note how the bottom (farthest) pairmaintain perspective by being closer together and the very slight gravity-curve on all of them. You simply did not notice them when you shot the photo.

I haveencountered many artifacts and strange occurances with digital sensors (professional and comsumer grade) over the years, andoccasional lines like these havealways turned out to be high tension power lines.

Even if it were a film camera, scratches would look somewhat different and I would still call these overlooked-in-the-viewfinder power lines!

Use PhotoShop and remove them.

Alas, I went back to the scene and yes, you are all right, power lines. Sorry to take up so much of your time over an error on my part, thank you Rob for taking so much time with me.

Don't worry about it, at least you (should have)learned to look for the little things before taking a picture.

Not meaning to offend, but Brandnugirl probably doesn't walk around with thesmall lense in her eye or the LCDonly in sight. If there were power lines (I agree they look a lot like them) she would have at least noticed poles or those big structures. I'd go with Gandalf065's ideas.

She may not have been staring through the viewfinder as she walked around, but I also doubt she was staring at the sun before she took the pic.

They're just powerlines. 2 minutes in Photoshop and they're gone.

And if both of you would read the thread, you would note that Heather admits she went back and they were, indeed power lines as several of us said almost 6 months ago in September!
