A further contribution to Saturday Shadows.
This is a beautifully constructed and very stylish hemp fibre fence at The Eden Project which encloses a hemp field, so the hemp planting is fenced with hemp.
The fence is not really a fence, but a sculpture made of rope designed by George Fairhurst, and is also a symbolic barrier. Visitors are invited to stick their neck out to see what is on the other side, as there are several large holes in the structure.
It's an exhibit about the useful nature of hemp fibre. Hemp is six times as strong as cotton, much more resistant to weathering and wear, and more lustrous and absorbent. It is also much more environmentally friendly to grow.
But the production of hemp fibre has been made difficult by the abuse of other parts of the plant (cannabis sativa). So the law requires that cultivated hemp be fenced in, and in order to grow hemp at Eden, they needed an industrial license and a physical barrier, so they made this barrier of hemp, which became an artistic installation.
V2 is the original colour version.
Pamela.

Marvelous shadows. A very interesting image and great point of view. I think I like the mono version, but by a split hair!

Wow, lovely complex shadow patterns. I like both versions but unsurprisingly the colour version just wins for me as it gives a better sense of depth.

What a wonderful piece of work - and an excellent subject for Saturday Shadows Smile Like both versions, and after much toggling, can't decide on which I prefer, so it's half a vote for each! Wink

Another trade mark Pamela shadow pic.. This is excellent, & reminded me straight away of Spirograph, a childhood game.. You must have much stronger sun to produce these excellent shadows Wink V2 just has the edge today
