Good Fences #86 - Rusty, Twisted & Blue

Welcome! - Let's join Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) for GOOD FENCES.

Did you ever set out to take a photo of something specific and unexpectedly find yourself discovering something totally different?  - Well that's what happened to me the other day.  I had went for a drive to photograph a couple of specific things that I'd seen and wanted pictures of.  As I was driving I spotted the freshly fallen snow on our Blue Mountains .  I stopped to take this lovely photo (which does have a fence in it) and as I was getting ready to roll the window back up and drive off I happened to glance to my left at the field next to where I was parked. 


 

What do you know here was this really cool rusty fence rail with some barbed wire and some twisted wire.  Naturally I had to get a photo of it so I could share for Good Fences.





I found this to be a very unexpected but pleasant surprise.  I hope as you are out and about that you find unexpected photograph opportunities too.

Have a wonderful day & don't forget to stop by Theresa's blog to check out the other great fences.

Things I am thankful for today:

1.  The "unexpected surprise" like today's fence find.

2. That we had a nice group of girls show up yesterday for the Girls Club.  We watched the movie, Soul Surfer about Bethany Hamilton and they all enjoyed it.

3.  That my hubby is starting to get some work coming in.  He just got his General Contractor's license and now that he's retired from the construction company he worked for he is setting out on his own.  It's a scary but exciting time for him.

4. For the crows and other birds and the squirrels that I feed.  It's so fun to look at the window and watch their antics.

5.  For pretty autumn foliage to look at.

  22. i love the mtn shot. & for some reason i have always enjoyed barbered (wait, that is not spelled right, is it? it is so darn early, woke up way early today, had coffee yesterday & it wired me up, ha. ha!! i am normally lately a tea only drinker, caffeine is tough of me.) wire, it is so calming. why? i have no clue. i find farming things or views just relaxing. a barn view. rural view that sort of thing. any who ... 'nough said. have a nice one. ( :

  25. Good morning Ida. I'm enjoying my blogs this morning as we drive into the city for a little Christmas shopping. It's about a two hour drive from our home to Regina, SK. And it is a gorgeous morning.
    I really like the colors in that metal post. Nice saturation. Have a great weekend!

  26. Hello Ida!:) The Blue Mountain shot is beautiful. I know what you mean about finding something unexspected,... the gate and wire was a good find, and it's a terrific photo.Have a good weekend!:)

  27. I wonder why the wire was twisted in such a pattern. I too enjoy seeing the wild life that comes by my feeder each day. House finches, sparrows that I can't name, and California Quail.

  28. I always like to do a 360 just before I walk away, you never know what's outside your target. Great catch

  33. That happens to me all the time, and it is almost always the best shots! It's nice when life surprises you with something you were not looking for. Love the rustic fence.
    I've been wanting to see that Soul Surfer movie -- what an inspirational story.
