Don't Fence Me In

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

West Sussex CC are working on restoring Halnaker Windmill and have fenced if off for the safety of idiots who have no sense.

This is a threefer -50mm sooc (35mm is equivalent), songtitle, September's words - hilltop, fence, weather, building,
Fabulous shot and great title.

Beautiful mill and great song.

This song would have been composed for American landscapes but goes well with this windmill!

Fool on a Hill might have worked too if you'd captured one of those "idiots" climbing the fence! I'm glad they're restoring it. I think windmills are such interesting structures. Good shot! and very impressive knocking off all those challenges in one shot!

Great capture against that wonderful blue sky. I like the song to go with it.

Kudos for the 3-fer.

It is fabulous, I always wanted to live in a windmill or a lighthouse when I was a child. I have always had a bit of a thing about round buildings.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond I think it is too late now, my knees couldn't cope with all those stairs and I would need a packed lunch to get there from Australia.

Very dramatic - I like this.

@onewing I'd stand you a meal!! Save you carrying sandwiches!!!

@vignouse many thanks, it was a b****r to get at 50mm equivalent!!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Okay, but only in summer. I don't cope with English winters, my blood has gone thin since coming to Australia 29 years ago.
