Great images....you don't see many old wooden fences like this anymore.

...typical country scene; nicely presented. Bet cat was enjoying scouting around out there too..

Tammy said...

Great photos Brian, love the texture of the fence! I'm sure that cat is having a blast out there!

EG CameraGirl said...

I ;ike that weathered look. :)

Linda said...

What a great series of fences! And the cat was a bonus!

Beth said...

great shots. i wonder what the cat is after? a mouse or? lovely. (:

Amy Burzese said...

That is one beautiful fence. I know that sounds weird, but that plastic stuff bothers me. Round bales make it better and the kitty tops it off perfectly!

Am under the weather. Had 3 big molars pulled yesterday and I would not wish that experience on my worst enemy. I was looking at the post and it really perked me up this morning. I love hay fields with the hay rolls, but to have them fenced in with wood fences bordering the water is gorgeous. Great captures. genie

Beth said...

Beautiful shots. I love that the cat is in the one picture.

Beautiful fence - classic!
And I think 'cats in fields' could be a wonderful category in itself. Love the calico cat.

Oh, I love that wooden fence! That cat probably has an easier time hunting now that the hay has been cut and baled.

Jan n Jer said...

Great views through the fence...the cat was a nice bonus!

TexWisGirl said...

i love seeing hay bales in the field, and the calico hunter is a great catch. but my favorite is the last one. simply beautiful.

Tricia Hays said...

Calico hunting field mice. And hay bales? My mom needs lots for her horses, nobody around here has any... for sale, anyway. Awesome shots, love the fence & the warm color! =)

Mary said...

Liam said...

I like the picture with the cute kitty! :)

Debbie said...

Brian as soon as I spotted your first photo the song "Take me home, country roads, to the place I belong..." popped into my head. I hope it doesn't stay there all day or I might be packing up my car and headed to the farm! lol

I LOVE your shots, the rich color of the hay and the weathered fence make for a beautiful photo of the country, Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong, West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home country roads. ;-)

Cheers.

Meggie said...

What a beautiful job on your Friday's Fences. Thanks for all your comments on my blog. They are so appreciated!

Faye said...

Learning to study your photos closely, Brian. A lot of times it's not the main subject that's the star but something more subtle. Here the texture and color of the fence is just so spot on, but my eye went to those lacy weeds and the few colored leaves in the grass. Just lovely.

Kathy said...

Great photos, Brian! I especially love the one with the cat. It is always nice to see freshly mowed and baled hay. We have a lot of that in our neck of the woods right now, and although we were mired in drought last summer we are among the lucky 20 percent of the nation right now that is not so categorized and as a result we've already experienced our second mowing season of hay and are hopeful for at least one, if not two, more!

Nellies said...

Great set, love the colors
Have a wonderful weekend.

Terri Buster said...

Great shots- looks like someone gave up painting this fence a long time ago! Love the second shot!

Leenie said...

Weather and time can sure add character to wood--or ruin it if it's part of your deck. Love the cat in the hay field.

Rohrerbot said...

Truly excellent. And that cat is awesome! Love all the yellows and browns of the pic.....very fall like.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love the chippy white fence, the hay bales and the kitten. My favorites are he last two looking through the fence and seeing the weeds.

Marie said...

Beautiful country views...reminds me so much of haying time in so many books I love....and the fence is wonderful! You made some amazing shots!

barbara l. hale said...

These are just great! Love that you got that cat. There's something about those hay rolls that is so appealing.

Shaun_ShutterBug said...

Very nice Mr.King. I really like the weathered look of those fences.

Bales of hay is ripe with wholesome goodness.

A weathered fence (great capture) provides a sense of protection and structure. Charming series!!!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Magnificent golden tones here. I'm smitten with the last shot; simple, but beautiful. Old weathered wood against the golden hues of grass. Bravo!

Nancy Claeys said...

Love the texture of the fence. :)

Buttons said...

Oh Brian these are incredible shots and a very familiar scene to me. B

Renae said...

Deb said...

cool fence...that cat is on the move...

tracegrace said...

The weather beaten the huge fence, bales and the hunter cat...All great photographs! I enjoyed that...

Ida said...

Loved these shots. I think hay baled that way looks really cool and to get the cat in the shot, perfection!
