Wood Fences in Millwood

Years ago, my teacher in a college photojournalism class noticed that my landscapes often include some manmade feature. He suggested I make that the theme for my portfolio that semester, which I did.

Although I really love the natural world, I believe landscapes are often more interesting if a touch of human influence is visible.  Also interesting: landscapes with animals. I love animals!

  1. Your landscape photos are fantastic and that was some good advice that was given to you. You live in such a beautiful area and we all benefit from it when yo share your images.
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. well, i like your wooden fences. :)

  3. Very pretty fence shots. I did make a correction on the post you told me. I most always double check but I was in a hurry to get that one up and missed it.

  4. Yes, I think man-made features and animals both can add a point of interest to landscape shots. Nicely done.

  5. I have a collection of fence shots. The older the better!

  6. What are those man-made features in the first shot? I'm not sure I've seen anything like them. Good photos!

    1. I don't know. It's next to a grist mill. Maybe I'll ask when I go back.

  7. I love these photo's ...

    All the best Jan

  8. Nice fences for sure. I really like the 1st shot.
