Dividing the Snow

Fences are meant to keep something in, something out, or two things separate. In this winter scene where there is no livestock, what purpose does it serve? None, other than to split the snow in half.

Fortunately I found another use for this fence as a photo subject. Perhaps a composition that is to be expected - receding left to right, with the horizon on the 1/3 line. In retrospect I should have tried a lower perspective, which would make the boards much more prominent. The ribbon effect of the three boards would have been much stronger.
