Friday's Fences






This fence is along the cliff at the Portland Head Light in
Portland, Maine.  Taken April 2013.



Here is another view of the fence looking out to sea.


I am joining with Friday's Fences at 
"Life According to Jan and Jer".

I hope you have a great weekend.

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. It's a relatively new addition. Guess it must have been done to keep people off from the rocks. I don't think many were impressed with the look of it. How about you? Your beautiful photos actually show it in a better light. Now did you get to Two Lights Park just beyond the Portland Light? There you can scramble about on the rocks despite the fact that people have been swept off and...

  2. Your header is just beautiful! I will have to pay more attention to learning how to photograph - you do it so well.

  4. The top shot looks very rugged - great perspective. And love your header (are your apple trees already in bloom ?).

  5. Good close ups of the fence and shoreline, Pamela. Like Vee said, I guess for insurance purposes the lighthouse foundation felt they have to try to keep the tourists away from that rugged shore, but I personally don't like the look of a fence in that location--it ruins the natural beauty. :(

  6. I've never seen a combination of wood fence with metal attached. Very unique fence!

  8. An unusual fence to cover the wood with chain link. Surely it would have been cheaper to use the usual metal rods, must have been an after thought.
    The view is awesome on the other side.

  9. Before I saw the flag the name Maine I thought it was Portland, Dorset as the strengthening of wooden fences with thick chicken wire is not unknown in the UK.

  10. The fence draws you all the way to the flag, I like that. I think I might have been here overlooking this same spot, sometimes you can see a picture that just gives you that feeling, this is one. Have a wonderful weekend

  11. I've driven through Maine many times but have never gone to the coast. I need to do that! It's lovely. Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day Pamela!

  13. Oh, I can sure see why that fence needs to be there!

  14. It certainly looks like that fence has a purpose.

  15. Gorgeous images, Pamela.
    I have spent much time on Tumblr looking at some of the stunning photography of water scenes there. Some are moving GIF files with the tide coming in and out!
    So peaceful and serene.
    Love your photos. You have such a gift!

  16. Would love the fence better without the chainl ink but I'm sure people would just climb over it.

  17. Love the view over the water...your header is gorgeous also.

  18. I like the ruggedness of the cliff and the view of the sea. This fence serves a very important purpose!

  19. Ugly looking fence which is a shame as the cliffs are beautiful.

  20. Gosh, I remember when there wasn't any kind of fence! I guess they had to do that because of our sue-happy society.

  21. A very utilitarian fence that is still not terribly intrusive on the view--at least in your excellent photos. I would imagine that there have been some safety mishaps here, especially for those who do not know the area.
