The world is still white here, and will be for a long time yet. We're forecast to get the coldest days of the winter this weekend, with potential wind chills of -40°C! I'm turning increasingly to photograph the rural landscape as much as the winter season (you can only take so many pictures of white snow), and you can often accomplish from the car window - frozen fingers are one of the hazards of winter photography around here. Hence my pictures of fences and barns, and coming up in the future some other interesting buildings.
It was a brilliant sunny day when I photographed this fence and it's shadow on a modern beef farm.
An older fence, but still effective at keeping the cattle in.
Quite a few different fences in this picture, but they work for the livestock on this farm.
I like this fence, disappearing far to the back of the field, partly because I see it every time I drive into town, so now I can mentally picture this view in all seasons. The heifers will be back in the field on the left in a few months.
All these relatively modern fences are the paddocks on a large horse farm a short distance north of here.
All pictures today taken out the car window, on COLD winter days!
