barbed-wire fence ~ 1

DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 14 June 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Near home, Crow Canyon Road winds its way through farms and rolling foothills ... it is rich with material for photographs.

oh! i do LOVE this one!!!!! Remarkable contrast between the restricting barbed wire and the determination of life to grow right through it nonetheless. Oh my... this is another beauty to be framed.

@Anna.C: Thank you for the feed back. I'd like to see your "fence" pictures, too. There are some universal subjects that are just too good to pass up, aren't there?!!

Nice idea, softness against barbed-wired. A very lovely and delicate light.

Hi Dulcie, that's really funny... we both took a photo with a rusty fence! I like your picture very much... a wonderful composition and lovely details, beautifully captured :)

@Nina: First the rusty fence..then the Cacti plants! Is it telepathy???

They aren't deterred in growing thru the barbed wire. They softened the wire's appearance

La nature aux prises du barbelé déchirant .... un magnifique contraste très symbolique !

It's not Crow Canyon Road. It's your artist's eye that makes these fantastic pictures. I love the way the light falls on the ring in the center of the barbed wire. And of course, the contrast between the delicate light of the natural world and the harsh iron darkness of man's (sic). Great!!!

@JOEMULLIGAN: These are lovely words to hear! Can't get too much of that!!!

I'm working my way backwards. Same comment as I made on the next image, plus, excellent bokeh.

Poignant image....This image leads me to believe that earth will persevere no matter what we earthlings do to it.

wendy from United States

Wow, that is a contrast for sure. Barbed wire and grass...I love them both in their places, however, together they are incredibly loud in a statement of balance. you caught this w/o wind, too, how are you doing this?
