I am delighted to be participating in Friday Fences
The wooden gate is locked, fortunately there is a useful wooden stile, with enough space underneath for a determined, medium-sized dog to be able to slither through!
It is a public right of way, not trespass.
The fence sweeps down and around a large fish pond.
It is the lines, curves, shadows and highlights on the wooden bars which I find interesting.
Within the wooden fence are three strands of barbed wire and then at the lower portion
there is some metal fencing to prevent dogs and children from scrambling through to the pond!
A fence built to deter and to protect.
I like the way the sunlight illuminates the top surface of the wood and the contrast with the shadow fence, the barbed strands increase the width and we seem to have three fences.
This shot shows a small stone which someone has carefully placed in the wire. An orange coloured stone. I wonder whether they will come back and look for it. I wonder how far they carried it before deciding to place it in the fence... none of this matters, but it is the kind of thing I ponder as I walk the fence!
