Country Lines

 Country road

Many rural fences are at their prettiest this time of year.

Beautiful images of the snowy place.

Margaret Adamson said...

I love the delicate look of the close up on the wire in the second shot.

Revrunner said...

Especially with a light dusting of snow.

Mascha said...

Nice in winter colors! The wire of the fence, the snow and the shadows in the first photo makes such a lovely pattern.

The old fence, red roof on the barn, snow, birds, iconic!!

eileeninmd said...

Sandra said...

I love that bluebird house, it blends with the fence perfectly.

These ARE good fences.I enjoy your shadows and light in the first photo

PerthDailyPhoto said...

You're right EG so pretty and how wonderful the little birdhouse, such a lovely idea.

William Kendall said...

Very pretty indeed right now!

Hilary said...

That first image looks like a lovely painting. Beautiful light and shadows.

Birdman said...

I think I agree with you: winter fencing draws the lines.

Penelope Puddlisms said...

What a clever place for a birdhouse … a perfect place to snuggle in from the wintry cold!

ladyfi said...

Lovely wintry landscape!

Montanagirl said...

Very nice job on the fence photos!

Tanya Breese said...

what a pretty country road!

Kathy said...

I saw a pair of bluebirds here the other day. Wouldn't they look pretty in that snowy landscape. Do they stay in your area during the winter?

Linda W. said...

I love your first photo. Such a nice country scene!

TexWisGirl said...

so pretty! neat to see the weathered barn with a red roof!

DeniseinVA said...

Very enjoyable photos. Lovely to see the bird house attached to the second shot.

Rose said...

EG, I so would love to travel the roads you travel. You always have some of the best photos.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Oh I love this fence and especially the birdhouse that's attached and unexpected.
So enjoyed my visit and visiting from Good Fences.
Have a nice day!

Jeevan said...

Indeed pretty! Love that birdhouse :)

Gerald (SK14) said...

lovely rural scenes

Karen S. said...

Of course I love that red roof off in the distance! Nice fence within a perfect winter scene, and that bird/wren house is charming. The boys next door built a few of those years ago and stuck them on my fence. They still serve the bird community and the boys are all grown up with families of their own now!

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

I particularly like that first picture. We've just had a sprinkling of snow like the first picture - the first of our winter.

Mary Hone said...

Love that little bird house!

Carola Bartz said...

I agree with you that they are really pretty! I love the post with the bluebird house.

Sylvia K said...

Wonderful captures for the day!! I love the red-roofed barn and the bird house! Such tranquil scenes! Hope you're getting ready for a lovely weekend!! Stay warm and enjoy!!

Cranberry Morning said...

Had all the best elements: snow, field, fence, barn, sky! In answer to the question, it would be 'shared history' . See yesterday's Cranberry Morning post. :-)

Stephanie said...

Wonderful images, Tina!

VP said...

The snow as background really help these beautiful images!

Ida said...

That is a lovely, wintery and country scene. I love that they included a birdhouse on the fence.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Very beautiful and scenes we don't see here in Florida. I love country roads! Hugs!

Bob Scotney said...

We've had snow today but I took my fence shots yesterday. The snow really enhances that second shot.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Wonderful snow scenes!

mick said...

Beautiful scenery and the snow is so beautiful covering everything like that.
I also like the photos of the kayaks in the previous posts. It looks a very nice place to kayak - but I wonder how warm is really is?

RedPat said...

We are actually getting a bit of snow here this afternoon. And you are right - it can make ordinary things look so different.

carolann said...

Your my kind of Gal with the winter
snows.

Mari said...

I agree with the beauty of rural fences at this time. It has a special atmosphere in winter.

Bethany Carson said...

Very nice fences! I really like how the red roof of the barn contrasts with the rest of the scenery.

Ruth Hiebert said...

These are very pretty.

Susan said...

Beautiful fences. I like how the little bird house is attached in the second photo. Lovely scenes :D)

cieldequimper said...

Love the red roof and the idea that a bluebird finds shelter in there!

Ginny said...

The first picture is glorious!! And bravo to whoever put out the boxes for the little bluebirds! I would miss my mountains and my church the most.

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Great little bird box.

Pamela Gordon said...

I love that first photo. The fences certainly stand out more against the snow right now. It will be nice to see the bluebirds return but it will be a while yet.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Pretty! Here's hoping you get a picture of a bluebird by that fence later this year.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful snow and the bluebird house on that country fence really brought a smile to my face. I just love that someone would take time to do that!

Lois said...

That is pretty! I love the bluebird house and the snow.

Amy Burzese said...

How pretty. That red pop makes that first shot perfect.

Paula said...

Love your country fences.

Jocee said...

That is very true, snow makes the simplest things look amazing.

LV said...

Snow covered country sides cannot be beat. Very well done.

Lowell said...

Wonderful winter scenes. Makes me want to sing "Winter Wonderland." And I'd do it, too, but when I try, people scream, "Please stop!" while holding their ears!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest EG; Your captures of winter scene is always magnificent♡♡♡ Lovely country road line and the blue bird house.
We were expecting snow from last night forecast but not(^^;)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Oh, what beautiful scenes! I like the little bluebird house on the fence post. :)

Visiting from Good Fences,

Lindy

Pauline Woodcock said...

The snow certainly enhances the practical fences. With snow, you and your camera, I think the drabbest scene would be lovely.

s.c said...

Great images with that snow. I like the birdhouse at the pole only a bit low for a passing cat.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Your countryside is so beautiful

Janet said...

I love the one with the birdhouse, and yes, they do show up beautifully in the snow.

Ruth Kelly said...

Your fence shot reminds me of Idaho. The middle part where there are no mountains.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

I love both pictures. You're right, they do look great with snow :)
Have a fine day

Ooooh, that first scene is terrific. (But, isn't it tilted?)
