PATTERNS: FENCES

This standard farm fence borders one of my favourite views seen from the Highlands road. The view changes according to the light and the seasons; the tall aloe is a landmark and the flowers too change with the seasons.

The height of this fence along with the many close strands indicate that it borders a game farm and is designed to keep most wild animals within its perimeters. We have, however, seen a kudu sail over such a fence with ease.

This very sturdy fence at the Doornhoek Lookout Point in the Karoo National Park is designed with the safety of visitors in mind: it is too high for children to reach over – yet allows them a view – and too sturdy to be pushed over by adults, yet is a comfortable height for photographs to be taken over it. It is situated right on the edge of a spectacular precipice that can be viewed in safety.
