I've tried this idea several times, but never found a gate that works (phographically). Now this gate has real character, and contributes to the air of mystery suugested by the title. Nice.

The abstract element to this shot adds enormously to this Ronnie, thoughtfully observed by yourself in your choice of title, the kind of shot I like.........but never seem to see for myself.

Hi Ronnie, great image mate. What first grabbed my attention was the lighting. Makes one feel as if they were there walking that woodland path.
In my book that makes this image "Top notch"


ps. I bow to your knowlege and perception, however, thats another story ~ Keep well.

Wonderful shapes in that gate, Ronnie, and a super curve in the pathway beyond that makes one want to explore further! A lovely composition.
16 Jun 2011 10:18AM
The classic gate image Ronnie, lovely light, but I have to wonder if I could get through there? Lol

16 Jun 2011 10:28AM

A bit of mystery Ronnie, I love these old kissing gates, I used to install them at one time on play-parks and public walk ways although the modern ones have lost the character of the older ones.
fine image well picked out.

Gates and fences always get my attention - in this one I immediately wonder where the path will take me. Well composed Ronnie with some nice light beyond the darker foreground.

Adrian confirmed my suspicion that this is known as a kissing gate, and what a fine example. Could this be another scene where your walking presence would look good, at the other side of the gate, perhaps walking away? One of the footpaths that I cycle down used to have one of these, and I had to lift the bike over it. Sadly, it has now been removed.

Ronnie you never cease to amaze with your great images and title to match

Love the pathway to 'somewhere' and the starkness of the gate and fence. Magical shot, Ronnie.

I love gates of all shapes and sizes, and this is a cracker.

Hi Ronnie, this is an excellent compostion and the concept in which you have captured is excellent.... The light on the otherside in the foreground indicated life out there..

An excellent composition and idea.

I only saw the 'thumbnail' and I immediately thought to myself "I wonder where that goes too ?". Your idea certainly worked for me ... Very well done !

Cheers ...
