When it come to taking pictures I can barely resist closed gates...

JM said...

Wonderful image! The fence is lovely.

Is Vermont supposed to be hit by Irene? I know it lost some strength but do stay safe, Brattcat.

I wish we could 'close the gate' and keep that ol' girl Irene out. I like this rustic image.

Irina said...

Please be safe. Open gates, always.

Love this shot Brattcat, that path looks so inviting, I so hope that you are all going to be safe tomorrow, it must be a very scary prospect, will be sending 'safe' vibes.

Is this a case of "good fence make good neighbors?"

Be sure to be mindful of your personal safety!

A gate, closed or opened, is always an invitation to the world behind..
But for the next hours, please close your gates, and windows, and stay in a safe place..We need to celebrate next monday with you!

It looks like Irene might blow over this gate.

Gorgeous image! Stay safe and dry.

Gates and doors and windows - all intriguing, but I hope you close all of yours before Irene arrives. Beaming you safe beams.

Brattcat - surely your Irene preparations are in high gear right now! Wishing you and yours all the best and much safety with little damage!
Sunny regards from blue skies in Minnesota

That really is beautiful. Hope Irene passes by lightly.

Jack said...

I favor rustic unpainted and weathered picket fences like this one. Good luck with the storm.

Doug Hickok said...

I love open gates, to gardens especially. We wish you safe keeping with the storm approaching. Hopefully it will not be as bad as predicted (cross fingers).

Stay safe. They said here on the radio that Irene is mellowing somewhat, I hope that's the case.

This is the doorway into a fairytale, isn't it?

Jilly said...

Oh yes, one must peer, perhaps be brave and venture through.

Beautiful photo!

Great shot. I'd have B&W'd it, but I see it as B&W anyway, it's got all the elements, doesn't it?
