Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Farm Fences

In response to Ann-Christine’s topic of #10: Fences, this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, let me take you on a quick trip to Volkening Heritage Farm at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg.

Here, fences are not so much an intrusion as a picturesque part of the overall scene.  Many of them are weathered and some used only as a temporary measure but all of them seem to blend in with their surroundings.

Naturally, the animals on the farm play a large part in many of the fence images in my Spring Valley photo files.

And flowers play an important role in the pictures too, the fences sometimes appearing to be merely an adjunct to their cheerful color.


Whatever purpose the fences serve, they are nearly always a welcome addition to any image of Volkening Heritage Farm.

  1. I’ve just been enjoying this post SO much, what beautiful photography. I was greatly taken with the solo pink flower between the fence palings and thought how nice it would be cropped as a square for the InThePink challenge 🙂 I’m a follower now (and I have a sneaking suspicion that another blog I’ve recently followed is run by you also, perhaps). Hard getting my head around it all!

    • Thank you for your comment, Liz! It was much appreciated. I may just use your idea for the pink square flower. Yes I have two other blogs here on WordPress, Getting The Picture and Incidentally. I have been very interested in your posts as we have family in NZ and I always love to see pictures taken there.
