Winter Fences

Just a few fences around the valley, pictures I collected on my drives a week or two ago.  I'm sure you've seen all of these views at some point in the past 3 years.  Running out of pictures now; I've only taken a dozen shots in the past ten days, all out a window or just outside the door!  Cabin fever is setting in!

 Blue Mountain in the distance.

 View from Epping Sideroad

 A favourite fence for shadows. 

 A new horse farm fence.

 And a big cattle farm - it's snowing.

A favourite small shed, and a Bruce Trail stile.

You'll notice that my blog posts have become pretty simple, without many words, and perhaps a bit repetitive.  It's partly the vision, and partly that I start delivering a 6 week Life Long Learning Series on 'Great Scots' next week, so I've been spending all my time squinting at the computer screen, getting it ready!  My vision continues to improve, but it may be weeks before I can get a prescription for new glasses, so in the meantime, no driving, and reading is still a challenge.  Photography still feels mostly impossible.  Starting to ponder how else I can keep this blog  going.  Today we had thick fog; the only constant with the weather is change!

  2. These are beautiful photos. I love the snow, fences and blue skies. I didn't realize it takes so long to get over cataract surgery. I'll be facing it later this year if I get in to the specialist. Your learning series on Great Scots sounds very interesting.

  3. I'm loving your posts of few words and many photos! I do that a lot, too, for a lot of reasons. Hope the vision and problems are solved soon. Not driving I'm sure gives you cabin fever! I love that you can see a mountain like that! I live in Ohio where it is very flat farmland...no mountains in sight!

  4. Very nice photos -- you could always re-post some oldies but goodies that newer readers may have missed.

  5. I am so happy to see your photos, new, older, or quite old, snow fascinates me, and I can NEVER get too much photo glory form you of your beautiful valleys and landscapes. Hope you eye is healing well, take life quietly. Fond greetings from a very windy NZ. p.s. our daughter and family fly to Vancouver on Sunday then to Kelowna and onto Big White for some skiing!!!Wish I was coming as well.

  7. Oh, I love the fence for shadows that you say is a favorite...love the one with it snowing...and just in general love them all.

    I was wondering about your vision. I hope things keep improving.

  8. I'm with Betsy: I'm enjoying your blogs with few words and pictures, just the feeling of community you provide for me is enough. I'm also learning how to "downsize" my blog posts. I learned of one blogger who puts up ones she calls "Silent Posts" and just has a picture or two and sometimes a quote. I'm glad your sight is getting better! :-)

  11. Even if we have seen them before (which I'm not sure if we have) they are still beautiful to see again.
    Love #5, it looks very blustery.

  12. Great shots! I guess photoblogging would be hard with limited vision. I've thought about because I'm getting cataracts. You could probably do a text blog with assistive software.

  13. Well I must say your wintery fence shots are quite lovely. Although like you I too have had "cabin fever" due to cold, and snowy weather here as well. - On to spring I say! Glad to hear your eyes are doing better.
