Well, that post and rail fence may not be there now, but it was in the late 1960's and that's how I still see it every time I enter this picturesque town. In fact the fence was a well weathered split post & rail fence covered in lichen and moss and gave a finishing touch to this idyllic rural scene.
Beautiful autumn scenery, Like, Best wishes and have a nice day for you, pcwong alice

This is probably one of the most unique pictures on Panoramio ever
and no doubt produced by an artist /photographer ever so clever.
Some may regard his taste as somewhat eccentric,
but not to those who have a great appreciation
for that which leaves so much to the imagination.
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, no two of us see the same
whether you view the work of a novice or somebody of great fame.
Irrespective, here we have the ingredients for a great reflection
and say thank you to Panoramio and all our friends who so freely share
their beautiful pictures of planet Earth that are beyond compare.
Wishing you all a joyful Christmas and a happy new year.

And that beautiful tree, most unique in this environment looks even lusher now than some 40 years ago when the Council chambers were under construction. I have been told it is a Sycamore tree, would that be right ? It is not in its natural habitat and am surprised it can coexist with this native vine living on it.
Hartelijk dank Martin,
Ik ben zeer vereerd door je complimenten en L+F. De natuur doet het zelf, kunnen wij niet namaken. Wij kunnen hooguit proberen het zo natuurgetrouw mogelijk vast te leggen.
Dit vind ik een leuke foto Jaap, in het klein lijkt het net of er een fontein opspuit. Mooie sfeerfoto.
Groeten uit het verre Nederland, Willy
I was fortunate to be there in the middle of summer after a short thunderstorm and refreshing rain and then the sun came out beaming through the tree tops making the whole place come alive in a most spectacular way.
There was the fragrance of the balmy air; the stillness - occasionally broken by the song of birds echoing through the canyon; the touch of the wet foliage and the taste of the Sassafras leave I was chewing on.
It was an experience for the five senses that revived my awareness once again of WHO made all this and why
Hartelijke dank Willy,
Nou moet dat eens onderzoeken wat beter is, of ik nou word gebeten door de hond of de kat.......?
Hartelijke dank Willy voor jouw prompt antwoord. Nou ik hoop dat het vlug wordt opgelost. Groeten, Jaap.
Fabulous scenery and quite unique.
It must be the cold atmosphere that has crystallised the long- and the latitudinals overhead?
