Ah, what a wonderful secret place. I just love the way the sun, early or late in the day, illuminates the treetrunk and the leaves in the foreground. Gives a warm and pleasing atmosphere!

Lovely

Thanks, Roger and Vicki. My husband goes out occasionally to measure the water level in some wetlands, and late yesterday afternoon I said I'd like to go along. While he put on hip waders and sloshed through the water and muck, I had a wonderful time (on dry land)--except that we ran out of light. Looking back, I wish he'd had the idea a little earlier.

Greetings Marilyn, A real old fashioned split rail fence. I haven't seen one like that for years. Jackson Hole has wooden fences, but they are a different style than yours. I remember these back in Maine, NH and Vermont. Very nice. Thanks for sharing the old memories.

Cheers,

Rich

Thanks, Rich. I'd really like to "collect" old fences, especially rail ones, by photographing them, but this past summer my only attempt at a "snake fence" (that zig-zigs back and forth) didn't work well. Maybe earlier in the season next year, before it gets overgrown ... I forget what type they have around Jackson: there are so many variations. Anyway, I'm glad this gave you a memory trip back to the northeast.

Cheers, Marilyn

Romantically. Wonderfully. Surprisingly.

This is a great fence Marilyn! It looks the same as the kind on my grandfathers farm in Virginia. When I was young I used to go out with him when he did maintenance around the place, and helped him repair a few fences like this =)

Thanks, Brandon. So it's part of your past, and this one is obviously part of the past, disappearing as it is into the growth around it. Come to think of it, I guess that's what intrigued me about the sight: it showed the passing of an earlier era more clearly than a shot of one out in the open would have. And there still are some of those around!
