Fall Fences

I continue to try and find photos that show the fall colours in the landscape here in the valley.  When I'm lucky, I do find some good views, and a few of them also feature fences of various sorts.  Here are a few more results of chasing landscape photos in the fall.

I really like this one, which is the old Sligo schoolhouse from over 100 years ago, a short distance up the road from us.  A beautiful stone building that's been turned into a residence.

Still trying to find that classic view of a red barn framed by a nice old tree in the foreground, I came across this shot yesterday.  I like how this fence has fence posts so frequently, most of the thinner ones presumably added later to help keep it up!

And this was the view of Old Baldy Sunday, when we had a perfect fall day.  It really was this bright and beautiful!

 Over the weekend we had a hard frost, and it was as if all the remaining trees turned golden-orange.  This shot looks over an alpaca pasture divided into several pens by diagonal fences.

But just in case you get the impression we always have bright colours and nice skies, I thought I'd better add a couple of more ordinary pictures.  This was before the weekend and the frost, when a lot of trees were still half green.

And these are some of the more typical skies we've had recently, a lot of dark grey clouds and a lot of rain.  But another interesting fence!

  3. My favorite photos in this beautiful series are the first two. That stone building in that setting is just perfect, so evocative of autumn! And the lovely rural scene of the golden fields and red barns with that gorgeous tree as a focal point is wonderful. They're all lovely, thanks for a terrific tour of your local colorful countryside!

  8. For today and yesterday with the roads fringed by those trees, every one is so lovely, where we live the winters do not get cold enough to show deep autumn colours.Further south, where it does get cold, leaves change dramatically. #6, love that deep grey sky. Cheers,Jean

  16. They are really great examples. The strong yellow color is unique in the fall leaves that you don't see any other time of the year.
