Pictures for Pam, Day 63: Happy Fence Friday!

Pictures for Pam, Day 63: Happy Fence Friday!
(+7 insets!!)

This morning I woke up feeling so happy! I was really delighted with how my hammock pictures turned out for my post yesterday and I have been so touched by the wonderful comments I've gotten. I am all a-glow! It feels great when you make a challenge for yourself and achieve the goal you'd hoped for! The fact that you guys like the pictures too is icing on the cake! Hooray!

I looked out to see that there was yet another incredible sunrise, along with amazing fog banks swirling around the Table Rocks. Of course I had to take pictures, and I've shared them as insets so you can see how lovely my morning started off! :)

On top of that, when I walked down the road on my first lap, the golden light shining on the trees created some really beautiful reflections in our seasonal pond, which has FINALLY filled up (It's usually full by November)! I got a bunch of pictures of the reflections that I'm sharing too! I kind of went crazy, I hope you enjoy them! :)

Today's picture is for Happy Fence Friday even though it's actually Thursday here in the United States. In addition to my main picture I am also including an inset. Each was taken on our trip down to San Anselmo over New Years.

Nathalie and Brian live on a nice-sized property with endless subjects to photograph. One of the things that kept catching my eye was the cool fencing along one side. Old and weathered, some was crusted with lichen and moss, other spots had rust stains running down from the nails. While I was investigating the front corner, I noticed the sun shining through the trees created a lovely dappling on the fence. It was so pretty that I knew it would be perfect for my Happy Fence Friday picture!

The inset fence picture was taken on the first hike we did up in the hills above their home. You may recognize that sun flare and Oak tree from the sepia picture I posted a few days ago. While looking through my photos today, I was surprised to discover that the first sun flare image I took included a fence line. I wondered if I might be able to use it for an inset but wasn’t sure. The picture was kind of uninteresting but it hit me…I could play with textures and I bet it would look great! Picking one textured image is the hardest part…it's such fun to fool around with the various looks!

Pam, is your pond full now too? When did yours fill up (if it is)? We haven't had as much rain this year, nor has it been as cold. I wonder what it's like for you guys? Are the dogs playing in the pond or is it frozen over? I had to make sure Zoey didn't jump into our pond when it was icy but I don't think it has ever been solid. I used to imagine what it would be like if she ran onto the frozen pond, tried to stop and then spun around in circles…I never got to see that reality but just thinking about it made me laugh! :) I am thinking good thoughts about you my dear…hope your day has been good!

These are all great shots, Janet. The light on that old fence is exquisite, but my favorite is that first panorama. That is everything a great landscape photo should be and as to yesterdays posts, that photo of the lichen, I'm really likin' it. Here there are several lichens that will thrive only when the air quality is good, so much so that they are of use in determining quality of the air. They are about the only thing green around here at present.
Fog tonight and if the temperature drops we may have freezing fog - not good for driving but wonderful for photos, so I'll be up bright and early tomorrow. Up early anyway to make some yebeg siga wot, a spicy Ethiopian beef stew served with a sour fermented bread, Injera. That'll be dinner tomorrow night. Had hoped to have our daughter and her family over but they are busy this week and can't come.
Had some good ice photos but I'm so far behind in posting that I'll probably never catch up. The Joshua Tree photos are from last spring and I've posted almost nothing taken since. Certainly don't lack for subjects.

A fine fence Janet...............captured in lovely light with gorgeous dappled shadows.

I really like the sunrise images in the PiPs.............both are absolutely gorgeous, but I particularly like the one with the orange sky and the silhouetted trees in the foreground. Some lovely images of your pond as well - especially the first and last ones.

HFF to you. I hope you have a splendid weekend.

HFF, Janet! It's a great fence picture. I particularly like how the sun is shining on the fence, so that it contrasts with the background. The PiPs are beautiful too, especially the reflections and the colourful sun flare.
Have a nice weekend!
