Fences

   Bonnie's theme this week for Photo Art Friday is "Fencing" and since I'm always cycling, and have my iPhone with me on these adventures, I took several shots of different fences that I encountered in my travels.  I played with this first one in Photoshop, added a few of Kim Klassen's textures, and enhanced  to the warm glow of the sun on this field.
   
  

 I just love this wonderful old wooden silo and the cedar rail fence on this farm in Magnetawan.


In this shot you can barely see the simple wire fence delineating the farmers field.


These remaining shots were taken on a late October day, last fall.  

The beauty of the old stone fence covered in ivy, and set off by the bright colours of the maple tree immediately caught my attention.

Here's another cedar rail fence.  I just love the natural beauty and shape of these fences.
The bird houses on the top of each of the fence posts in this photo caught my eye.  I didn't see any birds, but I'd be interested to visit during nesting season to see how many of them are occupied.

These next two shots show a wonderfully curving cedar rail fence with a touch of frost on it.  Isn't the shadow it's casting wonderful!


You might want to check out some of these other sites to see more wonderful photography.  Perhaps some people included the sport of fencing as their contribution to Bonnie's challenge.

  8. Your shots of teh fences are gorgeous - I love all of them. My favorite probably is the bird house one, simply because I love birds and I saw a similar fence just a few weeks ago. Lovely photos, the light is wonderful.
