Fantastic shots, I especially love the second one
i agree, love the second one.
what is a "Cattle Grid"? same thing as a "Cattle Guard"?
I like them both.
Nice shots. The second one has good stock photo potential.
Thanks for the comments...the first is a pretty boring shot.....done the same time as my other IR stuff, and the egg sign, I've tried a few times to get that shot but either forgot or some car has been parked up in front of the sign...this time I thought it a good idea to do a U turn as I passed.
What's a cattle guard .....A trench in the road covered by bars the width of the road, so as not to allow cattle to stray. I'm sure there's an easier way to explain it but there you go.
A Cattle Guard is like he said, trench dug out, with pipe layed across it, welded together on a frame. Usually about 8 feet across it, with spaces between the pipe of about 4 to 5 inches. Placed at entrance and exits in the place of a gate usually. Sometimes tho (in very few places) open grazing will have them on the roads. Cows have no depth perception, so they won't cross over the pipe.
Separate names with a comma.
