Don’t miss the fence for the trees.

While I was taking some reference shots for a painting series I am working on I noticed the strong side-lighting and it’s effect on this weathered wooden fence.  I love how the protrusion of a  nail expands into a long shadow across the frame.  Also the light brings out the texture of the wood as it’s grain forms long shaded valleys.  So the message is to look beyond what you see immediately, how many fences have you walked past lately?
