There is something appealing to me about old fences and this is a favourite of mine. I've drawing it before in silverpoint, but in winter. It is the entrance to Ryan's meadow where hay is made each summer. The gate and fence are hand made from trimmed trees and hammered straight into the ground. They eventually rot with wet soil and weather but are generally fairly long lived.
