The gap in the netting

By helenlinda
This netting is attached to the fencing surrounding the demolished Nursery in the school playground. Initially it was put up to reduce the spread of dust as the building came down. Currently it just screens off the area - but when it snowed it was transformed SmileSmileSmile
I love the shapes where the net is torn, the snow on the horizontal lines of the fence, and the pattern where net joins net
My birthday upload - and to me it is beautiful. That's my view, and I'm sticking to it SmileSmile
Thanks for looking

Happy 39th birthday to you Helen. Smile An enviable find, and I like it too. The snow has made the netting a thing of beauty.

Happy Birthday Helen - and what a lovely greeting you have dedicated to you.
The combination of net and snow makes a very aesthetically pleasing image.

Happy Birthday, Helen, pancakes with candles? GrinGrin

For some strange reason this reminds me of a Gordon's Gin advert! Interesting textures on the railing grid. Nicely seen.

The two planes echo each other particularly in that lower middle section. I'm looking at a landscape crop from the bottom of the frame...
Yes this is beautiful. Happy Birthday!

Many Happy Returns, Helen!
This certainly has a beauty all of its own, in the same way that a fading rose is especially beautiful. A delightful observation, well composed too.
