I love this picture...not quite sure beautiful is the word. Maybe breathtaking would be more accurate.

About uploading all those pics for my blog--I did it because the posts didn't make sense without them...nor did a lot of comments.

Plus I found myself wanting to refer back to certain posts.

I like the composition! Very atmospheric.
It's crying out for a song to go with it...don't fence me in?

Jenn Jilks said...

Lovely.

Liz said...

That is a very nasty loking fence! Made more so by the b&w. Good choice.

I like the way this works in monochrome. It made me think of the line from Woody Guthrie's song This land is your land, this land is my land. My favorite line in that song is: As I was walking I saw a sign there - and that sign said - no trespassing - and on the other side - it didn't say nothin - that side was made for you and me. I always figure if I hop a fence I can say, but that side was made for you and me, ha.

Great mono shot! There's an intensity that really works in BW. Well done, as usual.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great monochrome picture, EG.. I love seeing old fences... That barbed-wire can hurt!!!!! ha

An hand-crafted fence !
I believe you, for the original colours, but in B&W it enhances your subject. Perfect.

Interesting g shot, very creative!

Babooshka said...

Don't fence me in. It's so stark and eerie and such a contrast to the flowers. You're a really good photographer and I mean that with a humour to match.
