A Functional Gate

I thought this gate was rather plain, but it the owner liked it so that's what counts. I post a picture with fences for Good Fences each week. I didn't like my original name for this shot, so I've changed it mid-morning.

Well, the gate itself is industrial standard, but the creative use of the metal wheel and the tall but plain top-beam raise it a bit above ordinary. Nice photo of it.

Looks like a good sturdy fence and gateway Don! If it gets the job done no sense in overthinking the job! ;-)

I would love to know what is at the end of that drive. I love the entrance...love that wagon wheel to the side there.

I like the feeling of "the old west" that this image depicts. It has a feeling of freedom!

Actually ends up being a nice photo - ranch country era. Too bad they couldn't afford two wheels. :)

A nicely-framed view that you've captured here with great leading lines in the gravel path!!

Except for the power pole, it looks like the old west. I guess we call the power pole a telegraph pole. ;-)

I like it, very minimalist, it makes the landscape the featured view.

I like the simple look too! The wagon wheel is cool. And the view of the mountains in the distance is lovely.. Great capture. Happy weekend!
