Bench of the Week


















RuneE, a photographer, from Norway has begun posting photos of benches on Fridays. I thought I would join him today with a bench at an exquisite location: Lake O'Hara in Yoho National Park, British Columbia. Clicking on the photo will enlarge it for better viewing.

That was indeed a an exceptional bench at an exquisite location. The colour alone made it stand out, but at the same time fit in. A closer look seems to indicate that it was made in-situ.

Thank you for joining in!

Oh I do love benches, Barbara! This one makes me want to wander into the photo and sit on it to regard the view.

Teresa said...

What a cool bench!! I wish I were sitting there now. Thanks for sharing.

Charles Gramlich said...

Oh wow. Now there's an example of how civilization can encroach on nature without diminishing it.

Barbara Martin said...

RuneE, I'm now looking for another bench photo.

Raph, gardens and benches go so well together.

Teresa, the snow and ice will be melted away by late May.

Barbara Martin said...

Charles, a nice invitation to view the pristine wilderness.

Michele said...

Pam said...

What a great idea about the bench photographs, and what a wonderful setting this is.Beautiful photo.Did I read previously a hint of more Jasper coming?

Barbara Martin said...

Michele, it would be a very pleasant place to sit and contemplate one's life.

Leigh, perhaps hunger or thirst.

David, one day you will get to see the magnificence of the Canadian Rockies.

Barbara Martin said...

Tony, it is one of those places.

Pam, yes it is a great idea. Many thanks to RuneE for coming up with it.

There will always be more Jasper photos.

What a unique looking bench in a perfectly marvelous spot! I have a blog for benches alone called For the love of benches continued. A friend in France does also and we visit each other's blog on benches regularly. I am going to bookmark your blog to not miss any benches on Friday but also return because I see some wonderful photos I would enjoy!
