Coleen and I went to Taco Bell (her mom works there) for lunch last week. As we drove past Mill Creek Coleen was excited about the ice that was on the water and said we had to go back after lunch to take some pictures. Which is exactly what we did. So these first few photos have nothing to do with a fence but eventually you'll see where my mind was going.
Coleen was surprised to see duck swimming in the icy water.
Here they are walking on some of the ice on the partially frozen creek.
So what do ducks have to do with fences you ask....well nothing really except that I happened to notice that this particular bridge while being made of concrete happened to resemble a fence.
A closer look at some of the "railings"
The view from across the street.
The year the bridge/fence was built.
Well there you have it, a fence that really isn't a fence but actually a bridge built to look like a fence.
Don't forget to stop in a check out all the other great fences. - Why not join in on the fun and start looking for your own fences to share!
Have a great day.
nice construction design! solid but still some visibility. cute ducks!ReplyDelete
certainly a good fence, keeping people from running off into that icy water. when i see pics of ducks in icy water and on ice i wonder how they do itReplyDelete
Great shots of the ducks and ice! Your fence works for me, it keeps people from falling into the water.. Have a happy day!ReplyDelete
That bridge has seen a few winters.ReplyDelete
It is a fence in the truest sense of the word ... it does the job of a fence and it looks like a fence so it must be ... a fence, right? Love your little ducks. I know the ducks will stay anywhere there is open water even in the winter. It amazes me how they survive the cold, but like all birds, they have the means as long as they can get enough food to burn energy to keep warm. Nature always amazes me :) Great post, Ida ...ReplyDelete

Ducks don't seem to care what the temps are, they just like to swim. Cool, concrete fence...it's almost as old as I am and seems to have held up pretty well.ReplyDelete
It it close enough to a fence for me. Nicely done.ReplyDelete
I just love your icy photos!
It's raining over here and not really cold. So I'm here to get that feeling of winter :)
And I love that bridge. Did you think about taking a picture of the wall that surrounds the sign? Looks very pretty to me - that crackling concrete and the leftovers from the blue :)
Have a nice day
You captured winter well in your photos.. The water with ice is cool. I think the bridge and rails work for fences..ReplyDelete
Nice finds and that's just a more permanent fence than the wooden kind. :DReplyDelete
Glad I'm not a duck - that water looks darn cold!
Well, of course it is a fence! The year I was born, too.ReplyDelete
:) m & jb
A most solid and true fence!ReplyDelete
These photos are great...and I like you concrete fence...AND the ducks.:)ReplyDelete
I think it is a fence, it is the sides of the bridge to help you falling into that icy water!! Love the ducksReplyDelete
Lovely wintry images Ida. Ducks seem resilient in this cold weather.ReplyDelete
Brave little duckies! How pretty your winter pictures are; your kitty looks so sweet in your snowy header too.ReplyDelete
You know it's cold when moving water starts to ice over! That's a very cool bridge!ReplyDelete
That was a sturdy looking fence.ReplyDelete
A beautiful wintry scene! Those ducks are very brave and I love the concrete fence! xo karenReplyDelete
I just love ice formations in the winter! Hope you're staying warm.ReplyDelete
I'd say this is a concrete fence. Love the photos of the frozen creek.ReplyDelete
I like this fence. A creative fence shot, for sure!ReplyDelete
Assuming you like the kinda weather you are portraying, I say have fun. In either case, stay warm :)
The photo of the railing/fence against the water in the b/g is very beautiful.
So, are the other photos and the kitty in your earlier post.
Have a Great Day!
what great photos. love how the ice forms over moving water. your fence is perfect for good fences. it has character. hope all is well. have a great night~ReplyDelete
Good evening, Ida! Your ice build up sure makes for a beautiful picture. There is something about ice that is truly lovely...ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs
Awesome captures, I really like the texture of the railings!!ReplyDelete
Chilly but beautiful!ReplyDelete
I'm always amazed by how warm birds can stay in winter. And I think a bridge railing counts as a fence :)ReplyDelete
Now there's a fence built to last! Gosh, it looks so cold there. We've been in the 60's. Wierd.ReplyDelete
Ah...they used to build bridges to look nice. Not any more....I like that concrete railing.ReplyDelete
What a great fence ... on a bridge ... with a lovely, very wintery view. My goodness it looks cold where you are Ida. All the best for a lovely weekend, BonnyReplyDelete
Those are some great pictures and we think that bridge looks like a fence.It is amazing how the ducks can swim in that cold weather.Have a great day.ReplyDelete
love these pictures.. so pretty!ReplyDelete
The mallards are hardy birds for sure. Concrete it or not and part of a bridge it's still a fence to me.ReplyDelete
Well, I think it counts as a fence because fences keep things out of areas. And this one keeps things OUT of the water! I love photos of ice and water areas. But they make me feel really, really cold!ReplyDelete
The ice on the creek is fantastic - I would have come back to take pictures as well. The fence is good as well, even though it's a concrete bridge.ReplyDelete
A fine series and the bridge looks like a fence to me.ReplyDelete
Oh geez.....I like it all. The water..the frozen fall....the ducks, the concrete barrier....and the date. Lots of good things to see in this post..ReplyDelete
Hello my lovely friend...how I love the pictures of the gorgeous ducks..so poetic and a treasure to see them in the wintery weather! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
I wish you a very wonderful 2015 with lots of blessings and sparkles!
I think you could consider it a Bridge Fence. nice design.ReplyDelete
we have some ducks that will hang around a frozen over pond too. they circle and circle over one spot so that it doesn't freeze over. it's pretty amusing.
The ice is beautiful and so are the ducks! Glad you and Coleen came back for pictures!ReplyDelete
