GOOD FENCES


We were on our way home after a mini road trip last Sunday.  I took the top photo through the front passenger side window as we were driving along, and only had a few moments to get the shot. Fortunately I had the camera on my lap.  At this point several cars were behind us and we couldn't stop.  


In the photo above we had the road to ourselves so pulled over and parked in a cut off where there was one of those historical markers.  If we can stop safely we always try to read them. I noticed the fence and then saw how pretty the thistles were nearby.  (Added note: thanks to blogging friends Margaret and Valerie, I now know my thistle is actually a teasel.  Thank you Ladies!)


Quiet country roads with no traffic..... 



make for a pleasant photo opportunity and a chance to enjoy the surrounding scenery.

  3. I really love that first photo. It draws you in and makes you wonder what's on the other side of the hill.

  17. Oh, Denise, that first fence is a really great capture for a drive-by. So sharp and clear...not that I don't love the other. And LOVE the thistle. Seems like I love it in all stages...

  18. You not only got some good fences but some plants to go along with them. The best fence shots have other things that show the fence off.

  24. What a lovely shot of the fence winding up and around the little hill and then the beautiful trees and shadows on the side. Love your thistles, too. I think I am going to keep calling them thistles. I am too old to change now.

  26. Wonderful images! Love the first shot!

  27. Really nice shots. So many of the markers aren't accessible to safely stop and read. Seems a waste to have them if no one can read them.

  28. Thats a very good shot taken on the move Denise and quite artistic.
