A bench waiting for a person to come along and enjoy.
Perhaps another day.

Hi there Alfresco. Thank you for stopping by to view this photograph and leaving such a nice comment.

I've run across and admired this photo several times, but never commented on it. Everything about it is in harmony to express the peaceful, quiet mood. The vertical format and the fog accentuate the depth, and the subtle color of the pine tree adds just enough warmth to dispel any winter bleakness that might be felt in a fully monochromatic rendition. Very nice, a real eye-catcher.

I really like the mood of this photo.

Thank you James for your stopping by to view and leaving a comment. Yes, it was a quiet day. The temperatures were warm for a winter's day, but not good traveling. There were no people in the park that day. I found it quite nice and almost private as I drove and stopped to get a capture.

A lovely morning in the park. I do not find it lonely but filled with the beautiful morning mist!! One can hear the unseen and revel in the beauty. Lovely picture. (g)

Hi Alandra. Thank you for viewing my photograph and making a comment. It is much appreciated.

Hi Anne, have just found this very appealing photo, and am echoing all the other comments about it. It's very thought provoking and "moody". I love it, and certainly would have it on my wall.

Thank you Karen for making such nice comments on my photograph. This is one of the parks in my small city. The fog that day was very thick and I thought of those empty benches under the trees. How many people must have sat there and what thoughts or words that might have been spoken. A bench I think is made for two people, otherwise they would have put out chairs. (smiling)

Beautiful composition. I like the layers as the trees become more and more obstructed by the fog. Nice that someone planned such a nice place for contemplating nature.

Larry, you have such nice words for my photograph. I want to thank you as I really am learning how to make a story with my photos.

I would say you have an eye for photography if this caught your attention as an opportunity for a great shot...like other comments have indicated, it stir's your emotions..If I had taking that shot I would have had an enlargement made and it would be hanging on the wall... Larry from Vermont

Thank you Mary for you comments. Yes, I understand how you might feel that way by viewing the bench. I appreciate your stopping to take a look. Kelly, thank you for your kind words. I was wondering if I was getting a good photograph at the time. It's a hit or miss with my photos. lol

The empty bench makes me think of loneliness. Along with the mist and touch of color in the leaves gives the scene a touch of mystery. Well done Ann.
