Gated Community

Since joining 365 nearly a year ago now, a Saturday tradition has become going for a meandering drive in search of the day's picture. I've been on little back roads and by-ways that I didn't even know existed in my area. This dilapidated gate is just down from where I took a picture of a squirrel on a fallen barn roof back in October.

Love this fallen down gate and the golden grass that surrounds it!
Yes you read right about me not continuing on with the 365. I don't know about Kate's project and haven't even decided which 52 week project that I am going to join. I love 365 but find that it consumes a lot of my thoughts and time. I figure that the 52 project will give me time to produce my best work and not just a picture of something just because I need one. I have so enjoyed your pictures and your comments that you have made on my photos. I see you write on others and think you are so amazing to take the time and put so much thought into it. I am hoping that with the 52 week project I will have more time to write more detailed comments on the people that I follow. Like everyone I have lots of followers who I don't even hear from. I think that people should follow less people and take time to comment on their project! So I've gone on and on! I will really miss you !!!

Beautiful photo !! Great POV and tones. I love country roads, they are full of beauties. Fav

There's nothing quite exploring the country roads. I really like the weathered wood and dry grasses in your photo. Looks like a good day for that new Christmas pullover.

great found and wonderful capture, Denise!
About the next year of 365, yes, I will stay here! I am actually enjoying and learning!

What really amazing detail - love the old fence and the way it's falling over. The golden tones of the dry grasses are perfect against the fence. Like how you composed this with the silhouetted trees forming the background layer. It sort of ties back with the fencing. I really like how you "see" a scene.

This is really wonderful on black. The composition is perfect. I love the barren trees, and the tones. I too often go for a drive on a Saturday morning. It is fun to explore!

Beautiful. I always wonder about the history of places like this. This photo gives a sense of history and mystery. Fav.

Great textures and brown and gold colors. I like the fence lines bringing the eye into the photo.

Great shot! And I'm with you, I've done the same thing. My "Winter's Pond" was from a favorite spot I walk with my dog. It changes with the seasons. Love this fence! Fav

Denise, this is wonderful. I love the tones of the image and that leaning gate. Your title is brilliant too. Fav

That's a wonderful photo and a great idea to take a drive every Saturday to find it. I must try that!

What fun that you are doing that. This is beautiful and where is your snow. But love the brown grasses and the rather deteriorating fence. Great Shot Denise. FAV

The wonders of a 365 project. I know, that I like you, have discovered so much around my home and home town this year that I didn't know was there. Great composition in this image.

Beautiful shot of this fallen fence! Love the mood!

This shot is lovely - I agree - 365 makes you explore all kinds of places and really look at things closely. I will fav this shot, as it has wonderful lighting and composition.

Something different from you here I would not have guessed it was one of your post. Although you still managed to find a well composed scene in nature

@briggsy Yeah, it's time for this chic to find a new look for her images. Not sure what that's going to be, but I'm game to hunt for it.

whatever it will be I'm sure it will be executed in your usual excellent way;-)
