Frost Fence in Rust

A rusty orange chain link fence around an empty snow filled tennis court in mid winter. It could certainly use some paint, but I like it this way.

The 'Frost' in the title does not refer to the temperature, but the manufacturer: Frost Fence Inc. They have been producing wire fences in Canada since 1898. Growing up, I always knew this style, even if not made by them, as Frost fences, not chain link.

I like 'em better with rust, too: The style - and the advanced oxidation - defined the neighbourhood where I grew up, and this series brought me right back.

I like how you shot them - the composition suggests bitter cold to me. I can almost feel the wind whistling through the thin metal. Awesome choices here, Mike! Yet another example of you seeing things others willfully miss.
