Fences Of Life by kkart Fences Of Life by kkart
Fences.....
In life we meet many people
Who hide behind fences
Never seeing things for what they are
Assuming that they know when they don't
Guarding their hearts and self
Only to alienate those around them
Fences
They find so hard to tear down
Unable to see the beauty of life
Obstructed and in the way
Trapped behind and looking in
Willing to forget friendship
For their own securities
Tear down
Your fences.......


In other words, don't bite the hand that feeds you, because in the end, you are gnawing on your own arm

Rural Boulder County comes alive in morning light during Golden Hour. There are times when man made objects in a shot don't bother me much, and this was one of those times. More of a 'travel' photo than anything (but DA doesn't have such a gallery which I sorely wish it did) I really loved this scene when I was shooting it. The color, the light, the clouds...the ranch in the background...I really tried to frame the shot with the angle of the fence to give it a really strong sense of perspective.

Sony a550
Minolta 28mm f2.8 lens
Selective HDR toning
Lightroom 3 PS CS5

I hope you all like it
John

Wow, this is beautiful.
I love the lighting... and the subject is amazing. :D
Love the mountains in the background, and I like how it has that sweeping feeling where you can see the entire picture, grass to sky. :)

Wonderful shot.

This piece is beautiful on so many levels, it really showcases the natural beauty of the area. It reminds me of Eastern Oregon.
