A Small Spike

I wince at the thought of the pain this small barb would inflict.

It took me a few months to get this shot exactly the way I wanted it.  I tried different angles and focal points.  I shot this in bright sunlight, and during a snow fall with grey all around.  I even tried it in black and white, picking out the blackened hues of the rust…

In the end, I think I was able to capture the quiet, imposing threat of this line of barbed wire.
