November City Daily Photo Theme Day: Fences


So it's November. Time for a new Theme Day. These fences are located in the palace grounds where sheep grazed contentedly on 22 October!Click here to view thumbnails for all participants Happy November! (There are spooky antiques on Artsy Versailles).

Premier du mois, jour à thème dans la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo. Ce mois-ci, le thème c'est les barrières, alors voici celles du parc du château où les moutons paissaient paisiblement le 22 octobre. Bon mois de novembre ! (Il y a des antiquités sur Artsy Versailles).

How peaceful ! Years since last I saw sheep. Please have a wonderful new month.

Lowell said...

Beautiful photos - love the misty aura (fairly early in the morn?)...and who knew sheep graze on the palace grounds?

"Not I, he said sheepishly!"

Gunn said...

Wow, your images are just beautiful!

SRQ said...

I just love the top pic showing the fence weaving around and down to the sheep. (Adore those sheep!) Nice take on theme day!

EG Wow said...

Love all the lines here created by fences.

Eleanor said...

Nicely done!

Kate said...

The background mist adds to the entire photo. Almost a maze of fences!

Buck said...

Wow, perfection!

Regina K said...

Great fencing, caused me to realize another place I should have gone for a fence photo.

Halcyon said...

A beautiful scene!

Bob Crowe said...

I haven't been any good about theme days recently. Too many proposals, not nearly enough time. Your photos are lovely, though. Quite a charming rural feel.

Randy said...

What a beautiful area and nice theme day shot!

And why wouldn't these sheep be grazing contentedly. They are living at the palace in Versailles.

Very choice perspective of some interesting fences...it shows a lot of thought and preparation.

En France, les barrières, ce n'est pas ce qui manque...

il y a des moutons dans le centre de versailles

Malyss said...

Hum, j'adore! la brume, les moutons, la profondeur de la perspective, l'atmosphere.. tout!

Great patterns.

Woody said...

That's a lot of fence to contain a lot of sheep. I like the intersections of the lines.

@ Lowell: early afternoon.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Beautifully composed pictures Ciel, Like Lowell I immediately thought early morning too it must have been a misty day, love the soft light. How lucky are the sheep to graze in such a wonderful spot (well until the inevitable happens I guess!!)

joo said...

I love the mist and the serene atmosphere in your photos. Superb!
We are lucky to have the most beautiful Polish Golden Autumn at the moment - I mean, I still can only admire it through the window, but it is beautiful:)
Have a nice afternoon despite the rain!

Virginia said...

You have found some really unusual fences. Nicely composed pictures...

Petrea Burchard said...

Beautiful photos! What a lovely place it is.

Francisca said...

Are you sure you couldn't find any more fences to post for this theme day? Kidding, Ciel...you were there the right moment and place to capture these moody pastoral scenes. Nice lines.

T. Becque said...

This photo has such a nice feeling to it, and a great one of fences.
PS - I wouldn't stay in those motels either; it's usually bad news at some point!

Olivier said...

c'est loin de l'idee que l'on peut se faire de la banlieue parisienne.

Loree said...

I would never have thought that there would be fences and sheep in Versailles.

Speedway said...

Beautiful photos, Ciel. Wish I could see those misty pastures and sheep.

Keith said...

Beautiful area! I especially like the 2nd photo. So much space for the sheep to roam.

Leif Hagen said...

Perfect fences for today's theme day! But you are already into tomorrow over there!

raf said...

What a pleasing composition of patterns on a beautiful pastoral scene. Wonderful images for the theme.
