Graveyard fence for Friday Fences...

Here are some photos taken at the Chestnut Street Cemetery of Old Apalachicola.  I love these old places and could wander around them for some time without getting bored or running out of ways to take photos of them.  This cemetery was simply lovely.  What a wonderful place to spend eternity.



This is a close up of the detail on the gate above.

Beautiful photos in the graveyard. I love the fence. I also enjoy old cemeteries. Lots to read on the tombstones and some great photo opportunities too.

I too find cemeteries interesting and find the red fence in your first shot very intriguing. Great detail shot on that second one.

A high quality fence is a good way to make your property more secure, more private, and even increase the value of your home.
