Fence Post

Last week-end's family business left a little time for photography after all. The fence surrounds a meadow not far from my brother's cottage.

Nice use of dof for a good composition. Good rusty detail where it is sharp.

Nice angle and tones. Sylvia
I was in close contact with barbed wire yesterday getting the poppies, it's nasty stuff when all you want to do is get closer to a flower. Nice colour in this and we're all very aware of the stuff.

Good stuff Bill. I bet you moved up and down, side to side, backwards and forwards and all ways before you where happy with the comp'. Well I think you got it right, very well done.

A little teaser here Bill !!! A fine bit of rust on the curve here,but it is the line up of the rest of the curves,and the barbed wire,that makes me ''drooling'' for more !!!! Agree with Johns comment.I bet you had a few takes before you decided on this one.Good comp' here for a fine capture.And I hope to see some ''previous'' takes in the future !!!!!

Is that designed to stop people going in, coming out or to stop poachers maybe ?
