 Country fence being reclaimed by Mother Nature

Weeds are dragging this split cedar rail fencing down.

Same fence, different view

A pity to see it being pulled down like that, but you've captured it so beautifully it might have been a-purpose.

One of the most common fences in Ontario. There must have been plenty of cedar trees here at one time.

Looks like it have been a lot of rain.

Taken For Granted said...

As a fence this isn't so good, but as a photograph it is wonderful.

Sylvia K said...

Your photos never fail to take my breath away, EG, regardless of the subject matter!!! You make a "falling down" fence look like a piece of art! I do so admire your talent!! I do hope you have a lovely weekend!! Enjoy!!

One wonders how long it'll take before there's really no trace of that fence left.

Gattina said...

Very beautiful pictures !

Lowell said...

Mother Nature has no mercy! Or as Richard Dawkins says, the universe is hostile to life as we know it. Your photos give visual expression to those sentiments!

Margaret Adamson said...

Wonderful colouration in these shots.

Revrunner said...

Autumn makes everything look great.

Ida said...

Oh the colors in that first shot are just stunning. - It's a bit sad that the fence is being taken over but apparently who ever owns the land doesn't seem to concerned.

TexWisGirl said...

makes a great scene! :)

Jo said...

Beautiful. The first image captures. the essence of what's happening here.

RedPat said...

That first shot sure says autumn, EG!

barbara l. hale said...

Terrific! Funny, but it would be much less appealing if Mother Nature had left it alone.

Ruth Hiebert said...

This fence may be past the point of keeping animals either in or out,but it still has loads of beauty.

Rose said...

Oh, how I wish I could lay claim to that first shot....it is just about as perfect as they come! Love that touch of red.

genie said...

I love it when Buddy and i walk up upon old hidden fences from the past during our walks and hikes. These pictures are so colorful. They put a smile on your face.

Grantham Lynn said...

Lovely shots. I loved your capture. 'Reclaimed by nature'. Great post. Thanks for sharing.

Karen said...

Beautiful light and such lovely colours.

Stephanie said...

Beautiful colors and setting!

Kay said...

These fence railings make beautiful photos but I'm especially taken by the bright yellow greens (and that splash of red in the first shot) of late summer. They really pop in these shots.

Breathtaking said...

It makes a brill photo, with beautiful colour and light.

Indrani said...
