Monday Photo Shoot: Fences and Beyond


At a wedding on Lake Erie, guests gather at the fenced edge of a bluff to watch the sun set over the water.

Just beyond the fence, two sisters wait patiently for Mother Nature to open her paintbox and splash the sky with color.

Mother Nature does not disappoint.

Please stop by at Carly's place, Ellipsis, to play and to see what everyone else found.

I love the idea of having a wedding out in the open with people wandering about. Great pix.

Something about that first shot really, really works for me. I like the dark cathedral of trees in the background, and the positions of all the people give it kind of a Sunday in the Park with George ("A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat) quality. Well done! The other shots are very good, but that first one is the standout.

Yes, yes, yes! Karen, you win the virtual blue ribbon. I was hoping someone else would see a resemblance betwee the first photo and that painting. It struck me the same way. Cool!
