Simple design, yet they've stood the test of time.

I love the raw and powerful beauty these images represent.

PS: I have to say I was pleased with my cloud shots as well!

Lesley said...

OI love the shots showing the fence from above. And the overgrown wildflowers and grasses make it that little bit more exciting.

Gosh, so rustic and so my style. Love the pics!

Linda said...

One of my very favorite fences! I love the design of these - I can just imagine what it took to put them together to stay...love the shot with the wildflowers against that fence!

Beth said...

Very pretty

Buttons said...

Beautiful photos. I love the the angles and sunlight.
Split rail fence is one of my favourites even though it is a lot of work here on the farm as cows, deer and now bears keep breaking it:) B

Roan said...

I can't decide on my favorite. Great composition in all of them, especially the last.

Judy said...

I think my favourite is the last shot - it looks as though the fence is slowly being swallowed by all that vegetation!

Andee said...

Oh these are great fence pictures!

Mary said...

Awh. Thanks for coming to join me. It's super to see your work. Love the broken down fence in that lush greenery. (way different climate than here.)

Now those are totally cool! Imagine having to build them. Love love old fences that add interest to photos and the flowers just perk it all up.

Jan n Jer said...

These are all so pleasing to the eye...I could look at them all day long! Love your perspective!

Faye said...

All out favorite shot of split rail fencing is one from above with a long view. Looks like a fabulous jumble of rails. Have to see from another angle to believe that it's actually a fence. And how accommodating for that little bright pink wildflower (a mallow?)to bloom right by the fence for the photographer. :-)

Love the lush green in these photos, thanks for sharing, something to look at other than the dry brown grass in the pasture out my windows.

TexWisGirl said...

I really love those split rail fences. Even better when they have flowers growing around them.
Beautiful photos!

I love those split rail fences. The wild flowers look lovely against the rustic, lichen-covered wood.

Love the split rails. How did you ever see the fence with so much wildflowers around it.

Beautiful images, that fence has seen many years. The undergrowth is lush too.

Those are really neat, very pretty! We have neighbors who have a split rail fence and it is amazing, just love walking by it and thinking about how it was put together, a very long time ago~
