I really like the neat holes in the posts for the horizontal rails in this fence found on a horse ranch near Oakville.

  2. You can’t go wrong with a split rail fence…always good for a rustic shot with lots of texture! Nice shot n thanks for playing FF

  3. I think wherever we have lived we have had some length of split rail fence.
    Nice shot!
    I can see way back in the background more and more fence. 🙂

  4. Now that Carletta has pointed it out, the fences do seem to stretch to infinity…
    This is the modern way to build a rail fence – so much faster and easier than the old way, withough the holes drilled in the posts…

  5. I agree a lovely neat looking fence.

  6. Love the neat design of these all wood fences! No nails!

  7. Great perspective for your shot. How old would you say this fence is? And must still be a working fence if you go by the red twine tied to posts at far end. I’ve marked you blog to come back for a more leisurely visit. Interested in your architectural approach.

  8. oh it IS a fence; a beauty

  9. love the wooden fences, so much more character & charm! =)

  10. that is my kind of fence..I love old wooden fences…

  11. Now this is an awesome fence!! Great shot!

  12. It’s a well-made fence.

  13. I was just looking at a fence similar to this and thinking how much I like it. Just looks so sturdy.

  14. I first noticed the curved edges and tops of the posts. Interesting how different aspects attract our first attentions.
