A few more Taranaki fences

A few more fences seen while I was in Taranaki recently.  I was there for over three weeks but the mountain presented himself on five or six days only.  On one of those days only his foothills were visible.  Yes, he's definitely a he mountain and has his own legend.

 
 

The new Mangapouri Cemetery near New Plymouth has impressive entrance gates.  There aren't any graves in there yet that I could see.  Does that make it a virgin cemetery?

  1. I must comment that those snow covered peaks do compete with those fences.

    1. I agree, Tabor. Very few fences can compete with Taranaki.

  2. Hello!:) Beautiful, clear images of the weathered wood and the wire fencing, I think the left over wire has probably been wound into a ring shape and then hung on the fence for whenever it is needed,..often seen this done on the farm. The snow capped peaks in the background add interest, and look beautiful against the blue sky, and the new cemetery entrance gate is very attractive.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, the tangle of wire looked like it has been picked up and put there and then forgotten about. That mountain always makes a lovely backdrop in my opinion.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I almost missed that shot. My friend and I had gone up a dead end road and it wasn't until we were turning around that I noticed the opportunity.

    1. I like it, too, Red. Noticing the wire was one of those happy accidents. I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't stopped to consult my map. (I still prefer a map over a GPS.)

    1. That part of the country is beautiful but a little too cold for me to live there, Tom. I do enjoy visiting often, though.
