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.

Love that elegant curve to the fenceline.

Kay said...

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

Margaret Adamson said...

Love the wavy fence marching over the hill. Gorgeous shots of the Teasels.

Christine said...

A great shot from the car window, Denise! I love the curve in the fence as it rises!
Have a wonderful day!

Love that top shot. Unusual and effective composition.

KaHolly said...

As usual, your photos are stunning! That first one could be on a calendar page! Actually, they all could!

Great shots here Denise.
I love your first one the colours all compliment each other.

I do agree it's so nice to be able to enjoy a day out and take in all views.

All the best Jan

Wow that is a great shot out of the car window. The thistles are lovely too.

Valerie said...

I like the teasels. I have one in the garden ready to pick though I can't do much of a floral decoration with one. I need lots... smiles.

Rose said...

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...

Red said...

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.

carolann said...

Very nice fencing and the country scenery with touches here and there being so quiet. Thanks for sharing.

Uppal said...

Lovely images!

ladyfi said...

Great fences. Well done on the shot from the car.

TexWisGirl said...

Ida said...

You did a great job getting that first shot, it's so cool looking.
I also like the other fence too and think thistles make for wonderful photo opportunities.

Debby Ray said...

Wow...that first one nearly took my breath away...love the perspective!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Nice shots- I didn't know the name of that plant, but I see it all the time.

genie said...

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.

Karen said...

I love driving down country roads.

Stephanie said...

Wonderful images! Love the first shot!

pattisjarrett said...

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.

Roy Norris said...

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

I'm in love to the first photo, it's wonderful !!!!!
