Driftwood Fence


The remains of a driftwood fence is more accurate, I think. I found this one at one of our beaches - we have tons of driftwood, but then I discovered that this wasn't just driftwood - it used to be a fence. I don't know how long ago that has been, and it doesn't really matter, anyway. It looks pretty cool and certainly is a "good fence".



In some of the old posts the huge rusty nails are still visible. Look here - can you see them?


This is one of the nails up close:


Pretty impressive, right?

Some of the posts were rather hollow...


... but the wood on top looked beautiful - worn and weathered for sure, but beautiful.

Such beautiful texture in those sea weathered fences. What an eye you have to capture it all on camera.
Beautiful photographs.
I'm off to Lueneburg on Sunday to share in the celebrations of my grand daughter's "Zur Schulung".

Wonderful shots. What a neat old weathered fence you found. I really liked the different views and the close-up of the old rusty nail.

Truly beautiful. And it has probably outlasted the builders. It has almost certainly outlasted them.

Linda Kay said...

How interesting, and almost black and white.

My first driftwood fence to see. It should be strong and last a while.

Such a fine, weathered fence. Don't you wonder what tales it could tell if only it could speak?
