Fall Fences

Well, I'm running out of things to photograph around the yard under these grey November skies, especially while I can't yet drive to go exploring.  I'm going to have to dip into the archives to see what I can find.  These fences were photographed about 6 weeks ago in mid-October.

In lots of places along the Bruce Trail there's a stile to allow hikers to cross fences - although there are no longer any cattle in this field.

Just down the road I spotted this overgrown abandoned shed, with a bit of old snow-fencing blocking it off.

And around the corner was this board fence, originally intended to keep horses in I expect.

Here's another stile on the Bruce Trail.  You can see the white blaze on the old maple tree to the right.  The blue sign indicates the beginning of a side trail that goes down into the valley from here.

Over and over I see these fences with the fenceposts so close together.

And while out driving around I really liked this open view all the way down into the valley and up the other side, on one of our steepest sideroads.  Once the leaves are down, you can see the entire road.

  7. So beautiful!! I love the abandoned shed and the old snow fence -- I see things like that all over the landscape around here too. And the old horse paddock fencing too. Love all of it.... it looks like home! :)

  8. It's difficult to see how these escaped being published at the time as they are all great shots. We'd call that a "ladder stile" and I've seen some huge ones over stone walls in Northern England.

  14. I love the old fences. I can't believe you don't have snow yet. We have a little here in the Appalachians in Virginia.

    1. These pictures are all from 6 weeks ago or more. We had two feet of snow last week, but it all vanished in the warm spell, and we're now back to just a skiff of white.

  15. The shed is an unusual looking building. All your fence photos are great. The board one was really different. I am sure they used the wood that they had available to make it work.
