For the month of April I’m looking for benches with a view
If you would like to join in with the Bench photo challenge then please take a look at my Bench Series page. No complicated rules, just a bench and a camera required 🙂
- Create your own post and title it Bench Series: April
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader
- Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new bench theme comes out on the first Sunday in May.
My Picks of the Week:
Some that I particularly liked this week are from Jo, who managed to capture a few benches into her weekly walking post. Pauline has a bench on a ship – don’t get many of those on here! Karen (formerly Elizabeth) has benches galore on one of my favourite walks around Sydney. And I particularly like those curvy ones.
If you are a Francophile you will enjoy this view from Klara.
A new entrant this month is soletusknow with a lovely soft photo of a bench practically IN the water. Aletta’s bench is deceptive – don’t get too comfy. And finally Yvette has a tour around Washington DC, with a bench of course.
Thanks to everyone who joined in – more links can be found within the comments so do have a look around.

the vertical power pulled me right in – and the bench is so inviting down there 🙂
The whole valley feels like an open cathedral. It has such an amazing atmosphere – you feel so small and insignificant – nature dominates, in a good way.
oh that was cool to read – and that is the second time I have read something from you that gave me this “nature moment” – and not to sound too cheesy – but it is true. the other was on a post of yours with that view from the train window – and actually my husband has written an instrumental song (guitar) and he said it has a train ride theme to him when he wrote it – and I told him it reminded of a blogger’s post earlier this year – and I will have to share it with him sometime
anyhow, thanks for the reply 🙂
Thanks for your comment, it is so lovely to know that something I have written has had an affect on someone else. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment 🙂
Amazing view Jude that tiny bench is just dwarfed with that soaring rock face. I’ve been there we slept in a bus (the Green Tortoise) and woke to that magnificent view, just took my breath away.
Thanks for the link and this week I am remembering my time house sitting in Geraldton and walking along the Chapman River
Took my breath away too PP. Such an awesome place: http://wp.me/sL5Ms-awesome
Thank you for the link Jude. Places like that are what make travel and photography so addictive
True PP. I love discovering new places. This one definitely surprised me, but I had no preconceptions.
Me neither and I think that makes it even more incredible
BTW Jude if you would like to know more about “Green Tortoise” tours check it out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Tortoise It was one of those truly memorable experiences from our past.
Thanks for the link Pauline 🙂
It’s amazing, but I think I might feel overwhelmed sitting there beneath it!
Yosemite IS overwhelming. Have you read my post about it?
Jesus H. Roosevelt christ !!! – impossible to top (clever, huh ?) ! [grin]
It’s possibly the best place for a picnic!
But you’d sit there absent-mindedly stuffing food towards your cakehole whilst gazing eternally upwards, wouldn’t yer ?
Wooow, this ist the the ultimate spot for a bench. OMG. You’d beam me over to this one any time, even very early in the morning. 🙂 What a sight!! Congratulations.
Thank you Dina 😍
Hey – I know this place 🙂
I expect you do! Not so far from where you used to live. How I envy you having such gorgeous locations at your doorstep, though you were probably too busy with the family to do a lot of exploring, I know I was in SA!
That’s the thing isn’t it? We managed a few trips when the boys were little but once school began and all that comes with the terrain, well, you know the rest … 😉
Wonderful shot, Jude! I’ll have to come back to read your post about it and visit some of the others but I just popped in to say ‘ta’ for the link. 🙂 It’s been on my list forever! Sigh! 😦
Hi Jo, you got back before me! Home today and a quick squizz through the post to collect some picks for tomorrow’s bench post! Hectic hey? And although I was able to keep up with most of the comments whilst away the connection was rather erratic so I am sure I have missed some posts. Anyway I am glad you enjoyed this little taste of Yosemite – and YES – you do need to get over there pronto! See you later 😀
