Clamshell Alley is a lovely narrow lane that winds from Main St. to the seaside lobstermen's warfs.
On the other side of the lovely alley is this line of pickets fences seen May's green and yellow splendor.

Hi Tom,
Great shot of this old white picket fence. I like these small town scenes. The flowers in the middle of the frame are nice and add a nice touch of color to the pic.

Hi Tom,

love the light and color on this one. Another great capture!

Congratulations my friend,

Harsh lighting conditions well master Tom. These old fences are disapearing sadly in the name of progress. Interesting POV here.


Hi Tom,
What a lovely white picket fence, great angle showing the gardens behind, beautiful color, TFs

Hi Tom,
I like the way you positioned the fence to frame your main scene ... quite appealing visually. Color contrast is very good especially the wild flower and grass which also gave texture to the scene. Well captured and composed! tfs and have a nice weekend. Cheers,

Nice capture, I like the spring atmosphere--yellow tulips, green grass and the charming old wooden house with its white fence...


A bit of everything: a bit of the fence, a bit of the garden, a bit of the house. A good POV, it's like a passer by taking a glance to those beautiful yellow tulips and seeing at the same time their surrounding.
Picture full of life and curiosity.

Hello Tom,

I like the relaxed atmosphere in Vinalhaven Island!
I'm sure they are hard working people there as anywhere else but the surroundings breathe from peace & quiet...
The picket fence catch attention, and takes my eyes further into the frame!
