Fences in use - Good Fences 42

A fence can have many uses; it just depends on your point of view.

Garden fence - June 2014
The tall blue flowers are Delphiniums, those at the left are Geraniums and the light blue on the right are Canterbury Bells. The pink flowers, just in shot, are Foxgloves. All these break up the view of the fence.

The railing on the breakwater/harbour wall at Whitby has been put to a different use.

Railing 'painted' by the birds
Meanwhile one of Britain's colourful birds uses the top rail of a fence for beam exercises.

Chaffinch
How many marks out of ten for his performance?

Oh those flowers in front of that fence are so pretty and colorful. A perfect sight for a cold dreary looking day.
The beach fence/scene looked great too. Looks like the birds enjoy it.
I'd give that bird a 10 for sure, great balance.

Oh goodness, I can't pick a favorite fence, they're all great, but it's the location and scenery that really is beautiful in each photo!

Hi Bob .. love the colours ... beautiful border. Excellent fences and I love the Seasand view ... while Master Chaffinch exercising so methodically - I think he must be entering for the Bird Dressage?

Fabulous shots - cheers Hilary
