Then the bench taken from a slightly different angle.

This is like a grand Asian scroll painting of a landscape with tiny humans, or a pagoda, in it.

Aloha my friend!

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Oh this looks so idyllic, Barbara! The lake looks like a painting - a kind of oil pastel effect.

(PS: Nukkle was sitting on a bench eating his sandwich! Does this count as a 'bench of the week'?)

Ruahines said...

Kia ora Barbara,
Oh my! That is sensational. No troubles could seem important sitting there.
Aroha,
Robb

Leah J. Utas said...

I could spend hours on that bench. Days even.

Rick said...

As usual, what breathtaking photos you provide! How goes your writing?

Barbara Martin said...

Cloudia, I agree the clairty of the photos grabs.

Raph, these are fantastic views of this particular location.

I will add your post to the list, as yes, the bench upon which Nukkle sits fits in well.

Barbara Martin said...

Robb, I agree these are quite the photos!

Rick, just taking a break from my editing in preparation for an agent. All work and no play tends me make me a tad grumpy.

Teresa said...

Hooray! Canadian mountains for a beauty break! Thanks for the bench, Barbara.

PERBS said...

I could stand sitting on that bench for a spell. lol Beautiful, no gorgeous place to sit for awhile. Come and see my personal bench.

J. L. Krueger said...

I always seem to be playing catch up here. But time well-spent and the scenery as always uplifting.

I won't comment on all the posts I've missed, but I'm sure perusing them!

Reader Wil said...

I agree with Leah: "I could spend hours on that bench too!" The scenery is so beautiful!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

What a great place for a bench. The problem is, once planted I might not want to leave.

I too have a bench up:

Malyss said...

The bench is really a very small detail in that case.. What a great, impressive place; what a beauty!!
I wonder how you could see the bench among all this dream landscape!Ü
(Being french, I have problems to find the english words to describe what I feel in front of this view..)

Josh said...

man that looks amazing.

Dimple said...

The bench may be small, but the scenery is magnificent.

Margaret Cloud said...

What a beautiful place, I agree I could spend the day there. Have a great weekend.

Rajesh said...

The landscape is amazingly beautiful.

Barbara Martin said...

Teresa, PERBS, I have to keep the hot weather at bay with cool mountain lake photos.

J.L., uplifting visitors' spirits is part of the reason I post the panoramic landscapes and hiking trips.

Wil, it's certainly at a perfect location to view the surrounding area.

EG Tour Guide, yes, though rain would cause me to seek shelter.

Malyss, I have an eye for detail and in my first look at this photo the bench was not overlooked, but seen as an accent.

Barbara Martin said...

Josh, Dimple, Margaret, Steve, Rajesh: the rugged mountains with their forests, glaciers and lakes provide an infinite number of possibilities for taking that one perfect shot.

Phoenix said...

Wow!!! Breathtakingly beautiful!

Leigh Russell said...

That is some bench, Barbara! Not to mention the view . . . how wonderful.

Snowbrush said...

Such beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing them.

bindu said...

oh wow. What a view!

T and S said...

WOW, what a place Barbara. This surely is heaven on earth and I noticed that there are no credits for these pictures, which means they are yours.

Both are beautiful landscape shots, I somehow like the first one more, congratulations

Pam said...

Stunning...just stunning. I think I'd need a bench to sit down - the view would both knock me over and take my breath away!
