A few from yesterday evening.
Thanks. I love walking there.
Brings back a lot of memories, although I don't recall metal fence posts that were in such good condition.

The posts in my photos are only a few years old, Tom. Our church sold part of a 110 acre parcel to a developer, and the first thing he did was fence it off. The old road on our side, however, is decades old.
Beautiful light, great colours
Late summer has beautifull colours... unfortunatelly it usually ends with cold winter....
Thanks folks. It can get pretty cold here, too, but that is a good time for hiking and more interesting photographs!
Nice set. Great colours.
I assumed that the fence was relatively new. Even with modern paints and coatings, it's tough to keep metal in that nice a condition for too many years in that climate. (Although it is even tougher when you get exposed to the salt in the air near the ocean.)

Yup, the fall color is usually as nice or nicer than the better-known fall color in New England.
BTW, I thought winter in West Virginia was fairly cold until I went away to school at Purdue University in Indiana. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr . . .
The average temperature was not a lot colder, but the strong winds provided a big chill factor on that flat land, and it was a very damp cold because the weather came from the north and picked up moisture crossing the Great Lakes. I've been comfortable skiing at Lake Tahoe in colder temperatures with lighter clothing than I was wearing while cursing the cold at Purdue.

Yep, 20F with a chill, damp wind is worse than less than 10 with low humidity and no wind.
