Rust


This rusty fence or gate I discovered in Olompali State Park near the historic buildings. Only when I came closer did I see all the beautiful detail that was hidden in the shade of the huge trees.

Processed with kk_partings in multiply at 75%

When I saw all the rust I had to think of Knipsa and how much she would like this. I'm pretty sure she would have loved this place.


The gate must have been very pretty once, and it still kept some of that beauty long gone.

Processed with "golden" in soft light at 68%, texture brushed away from the "spike", levels adjustment on texture only

Isn't this just beautiful? I loved it and spent quite some time looking for lovely rusty detail. I like how well it works with the green background.

This is, of course, for Kim's Texture Tuesday!

Carola, I love this artistry of rust on the old metal fasteners. They must be really sturdy.

I really like this place too from what you've captured! That was, actually still is, just a bit tired, but a very unique fence.

I love old stuff like this. So much character and charm....makes me wonder how times were when it was new and fresh. Hubs is taking me to see another old church today. Can't wait. Talk soon!

Rust is often a slow and silent killer - but so very beautiful with it.

Altersspuren sind immer sehr interessant. Werkstücke, die einstmals ein Mensch gefertigt hat, die benutzt wurden und irgendwann unbenutzt vor sich hindämmerten ...
Tolle Aufnahmen.

Wonderful rust. I especially like the third from bottom . . . wonderful colors from the rust to the background.

Beautiful! I love the textures and color of the rust and old wood. A fantastic find. I bet you did spend a lot of time there, I know I would have. :)

Oh noch jemand der Rost liebt. Ich nehme auf meinem Blog auch an einer Rostparade teil. Es ist einfach herrlich, was man dort alles sieht.
Vielen Dank für deinen Besuch auf meinem Fotoblog.
