REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

The split-rail fence

It's time for Fridays Fences again, and I have one that causes me to wonder:  could this barrier prevent any animal from crossing, or is it just a mark of a property line.   (I think pygmy goats could jump this one!)   However, there's just something about the character of an old split-rail fence.


Linking up with Weekly Top Shot

This fence looks long forgotten! Great shot!

It is a very beautiful picture, but I can't imagine it would keep any of my animals from crossing it.

fabulous! if it didn't take up so much room (and make it nearly impossible to mow near it) i'd want one of my own!

Probably not goats but horses and cattle can be contained with these old rail fences. It's funny I think more of them as Civil War fences marking territory lines more than anything else.
Nice rustic shot!

It's inevitable, a fence doesn't last forever...sometimes they do improve with age just for photo ops...nicely captured!

Well I'm not sure what it would hold back but it sure does look pretty cool in your shot.

It somehow reminds me of when Pooh and Piglet moved Eeyore's house to the other side of the wood... Makes a great photo, though!

Great shot, interesting subject, nice composition. Old wood, dried grass, snow, trees. It all works just right.
