[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My contribution of this week theme is a macro taken from an old barn in the mountains (Aletsch). The “wrinkles” sculpted in the wood tells the hard time of the transhumance that our fathers and ancestors had to go trough.
Transhumance is the seasonal movement of people with their livestock between fixed summer and winter pastures. In Valais, it implies movement between higher pastures in summer and lower valleys in winter.

Hi Serge, An interesting contribution with this Wrinkles to `Weathered' Friday Theme. Perfect focus as one can see the texture of the old barn clearly. The wrinkles sculpted in the wood certainly describe the revolution of the human life style. Thank for sharing and Happy Holidays

Une observation très intéressante, j'aime bien ces contrastes qui mettent en valeur les fissures.
Une belle sculpture, un résultat qui me plait beaucoup, tout comme votre galerie.
