Amazing view/angle.
I don't know why but I wouldn't expect a bench in such a landscape!

Great point of view and perspective! Nice clouds on the sky. Color version is very nice also, but I love your B&W photos.

Dustin said...

Two absolute peaches again!!

I've missed your stuff since I've been away. I'm back now though, and I'm already looking forward to your next posts. (The Beach shot is outstanding!!)

A fine "frontal bench". I suppose tired runners sat down here, or lovers, or old men and ladies to take a moment in the sun...Very nice one.

jlbussey said...

I like the perspective... looks very warm and inviting!

S. crypt said...

Hey for this one, I definitely like the colored version better than the BW. The BW is still nice, but the colored version stands out big time! Nice photo!

KPK said...

I absolutely agree with s.crypt here!

Suby said...

Woweee, lovely lovely shot. The fact you have this bench in such a scenic place is to die for. The combination just works. I LIKEY very much. The B&W conversion is perfect. Postcard I say. Now wish I could find a shot like this.

Good composition. It has something special. Looks very peaceful and with fresh air.

dave said...

Great bench, and I enjoy the color one too. Are those tents in the background?

I didn't see them in the b/w at first.
