Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Fences and Gates
Another challeng from Cee. This time I decided to take it on ‘live’, no going back through the archives.
This week the topic is Fences and Gates. This is a topic you can really enjoy. Let’s see how creative you can get. I’m looking forward to what you all decide to post. I just want you to have some fun with your photography.
In the Gettysburg battlefield
Here in the mid-Atlantic states, we find many split-rail fences, though they are picturesque, my instinct for this challenge was to look at one from a different perspective.

Taking a drive across the Chesapeake Bay
Right across the Chesapeake Bay one finds Terrapin Park,
This award-winning 276-acre nature park features a 3.25-mile oyster chaff walking trail, which meanders through wildflower meadows, wetlands, tidal ponds, woodlands and sandy beaches. The trail provides a unique vantage point for viewing an incredible variety of waterfowl, wildlife and plant species. A gazebo and wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, located along the beach afford a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and park benches located along the trail provides a brief respite for the weary. The trail, which wanders over several ridges, across marshlands and through woodlands, features two observation blinds overlooking the tidal ponds. The trail connects to the County’s Cross Island Trail system. Nearby free parking for the Cross Island Trail system is available at Old Love Point Park. Portable toilets are available year round.
The park includes over 4,000 feet of shoreline and 73 acres of wetlands, making it a destination for nature and wildlife enthusiasts. From the two observation blinds which border the tidal ponds, herons, ospreys, swans, turtles, bullfrogs and a variety of songbirds can be seen.
Located about 80 feet off one of the trails, deep in the forest I ran across this old family plot.
