Love the empty space...
Cheers, Klaus

You have created a story line just with the placement of the chair, Rune. There are so many elements that create the perspective. Wonderfully composed. Thank you.

Lovely photo, Rune, and one that activates the imagination. Where has the occupant gone? Out to sea? What is the destination? What's on the other side of the bridge?

Nice Sky Watch.

I don't know why he left (unless it was to take a picture). The scene is too beautiful to miss a second!

Hmmmm.... this is a wonderful example that a picture is really worth a thousand words. So many different facets and emotions are embedded in this shot. Great job!

My SWF photos are posted in these blogs:
Jenn Was Here and Shutter Happy Moments.

Please drop by if you have some time. Thanks.

Ah, great you left me a chair - so I can sit and admire the view.

PJ said...

I love the chair. I would so love to be there! Gorgeous.

Petunia said...

Så det er der du sitter og venter på seilbåtene som ankommer Bergen i disse dager. Ikke den verste utsiktplasse det der.
Bildet ditt var fin og artig.
Du skrev hos Gawo (tror jeg) at du av og til lurte på å ta pause fra blogging og bare holde på med fotografering fordi du følte du kunne så lite.
Jeg synes du er flink og har en flott egenskap som en god fotograf bør ha (men som mange ikke har) og det er at du ser motiver. Sånne tekniske ting som man må sette seg inn i og som man må lese seg til, det kommer etter hvert som man lærer kameaet sitt å kjenne.
Jeg håper i alle fall du ikke tar pause fordi da får vi ikke ta del i den flotte fotograferingen din, Rune!

A beautiful photograph.

Have been dealing with RA in my hands. The chemotherapy drug doesn't get rid of the pain so it has been hard to type.

Lovely scenery but for the life of me, I can't understand why you would want to leave it! lol! I like the way you used that empty chair in your photo to add the feel of solitude.

Thanks for visiting my SWF!

Isn't it amazing that we can get so many incredible sky photos and nary a one alike? Lovely shot. Makes you think a bit.

Hey Rune, you have done wonders with an already pretty view! Thank you.
Happy Skywatching, I posted a peaceful, but pre-storm, sunrise pointed in an unusual direction today.

Angie said...

A beautiful and thought-provoking picture.I wonder what thoughts were going through the watcher's head and did he or she find it difficult to tear themself away from that view? I know I would have done.

pts said...

Beautiful image.

Barbara Martin said...

The empty chair provides a good focus for the shot, and anyone with a creative mind can conjure up all sorts of different scenarios to go with it.

babooshka said...

Such a striking image, the solitary chair against the big expanse of sky and sea. Brilliant.

Carletta said...

Well done!
Love the empty chair and the caption - it all works! It's like I could put myself in that chair - I so would like too!

Lew said...

The sky watcher must have gone to post his photo. And a bridge, too! Luckily for me the plane was heading for Washington to "drop" some people for a visit.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Hi Rune... this is very good and really as one thinking about the chair... I'd like to sit there chatting to you about life and putting the world to right.. ;o)

Ronald said...
