...high in the Austrian Alps!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.

Interesting fence. Somehow it reminds me of a fence in Seurasaari in Finland. That's a museum.

@Mirjam: Thank you, Mirjam, and I can see why this reminded you of your fence shot. ;D

What a superb capture of a wonderful craft Judy, I hope it still remains

@Doug: Thanks, Doug ... wood is so malleable when green; I've made some wreaths out of large green vines and it was fun.

Ecologically sound I'd say !

I wonder if this is where "ring fencing" came from?

@Curly: I didn't know the term "ring fencing" but when I googled it, it refers to financing tactics and I don't think that's what you meant. ;D

Carol from United States

fascinating. I am enjoying all of your photos, even though I don't comment on each one. I love that you are able to relive your memories by posting these shots. Hugs to you both.

simple, time tested, and very effective ... and picturesque, too !

@franz: Thank you, Franz. Do you see new fences in this style in your country?

Don from Spokane, United States

A fine fence to notice and shoot. It' s unusual construction is remarkable. A good find and a very successful shot.

@Don: Thank you, Don ... appreciate your comment.

What a curious composition! It reminds me of matchsticks and the green that disappears into the mist is gorgeous!By the way, I love your use of tootsies in the last reply :D

@Abena: Glad you liked the image ... and my 'test' of your American slang! <grin>

Wondering if the connectors are old grapevines, twisted to shape.

@Viewfinder: Now that I think about it, I'll bet you're right, Glenn.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Well......I did actually :-)

@Curly: Aha ... the joke's on me. ;D (Vic. Catalonia) from CAT. New European State, Poland

Very very niche shot and very difficult construction of the fence.

alas, the new fences seem to be very different ... only few people make the effort of building a new fence this way :-(

@franz: I feared that might be the case. Viewfinder/Glenn asked: "Wondering if the connectors are old grapevines, twisted to shape." I tend to think that might have been the case.

franz from Baden, Austria

those connectors are most likely willow branches. they are used for this kind of thing, also for basket weaving and the like ;-)

@franz: Ahh, didn't think about willow branches; thank you, Franz!
