It is very colorful, but somewhat forlorn.
I have a bench up now.

Sometimes parks are at their prettiest when no one is there.

Lovely colourful benches and a nice kind of wistfully restful atmosphere - as if the place is saying "Ahhhh - time for a nice rest!"

I've got my bench up - it's in my Autumn header. I'm hoping to write about it too, tomorrow, as I've a piece of work to finish now and it's 2.20am here!!

Excellent colours for benches and table, providing a restful place to ponder and rest.

My bench is up.

Ah yes, a sure reminder of Autumn!

Lew said...

Bautiful and colorful spot!

James said...

You have a nice assortment of benches, fun and colorful perhaps for children as well as the amphitheater style for watching the stage. I think the amphitheater benches would ruin my back. :)


My benches are at Something Sighted

Great colours; we have a lovely Autumn day here at the moment.

Hi Rune...
These coloured benches and tables serve there purpose well I'm sure... and as nice as they are my eye are drawn to the bandstand and the rows of benches there... I think I would sit over there looking back onto these... or even the quiet looking coloured benches at the back... they almost blend into the background.... there really is a lot going on in this picture... great post...

Nice one Rune, love the bright colours, true Autumn.


Thanks for your visits and kind comments, - on the theatre, but it isnt a theatre lol, just a stone wall by a rocky beach,lol.

We are still enjoying what is known as "Indian Summer" here in southern Ohio where we live. The temperatures have been warm and only today have we had excessive amounts of rain. Soon the rain will change to snow and ice but we don't think about that right now. Most places like your park are also closed here or there are no events scheduled.

I like the geometric patterns of the benches in the back, the colors of the benches in the front, and all of the stone work underneath the benches. It looks like a great area.

Rune(Efoyblomst med gjest) try the sponge tool/ Mode Desaturate/ Flow 55% - 70% don't tick the vibrance.

It's work! :-)
Sorry, I know is not my "problem", just that I enjoy.

PERBS said...

Well, I spotted the neat colored benches first and then the stadium benches behind! Nice find! Stadium benches are just benches but those brightly painted ones, I really enjoy!

Come by and see my benches --yes, I ahve two but they are identical and back to back!

Fargeklatter i en forlatt dyrepark! :)
Kult bilde!

I like the primary colors amidst all that autumn foliage. The end of the season always seems a bit sad...

Wenche said...

Flotte fargerike benkar. Synest det er flott med tilhøyrande fargerike bord til. Godt knipsa. Ha ei flott helg!

Sylvia said...

A wonderful place to play. There is a smal theatre on the back, as I see it. The nature is fascinating.

Viola said...

Tomme benker ja, og like fargefulle som høsten! Flott bilde! :)

My bench has taken place at my blog :)

Phoenix C. said...

Fint! :)
Flotte fargeklatter!

Petunia said...

God formiddag!
jeg har endelig klart å somle meg til å være med og vise deg ukens benk. men skal du sitte på den, så ta med et sitteunderlag. Tror det kan bli rimelig kaldt i rumpen hvis ikke:)

Petunia said...

Jeg glemte å kommentere bildet ditt... for selv om det var ganske folketomt der, så var det likevel et muntert bilde med mye farge. Flott motiv og det er du veldig flink til å finne.

Malyss said...

Empty places after the season give a sweet mood of nostalgy to things..Children laughing, people talking, are nothing more than an echo which is slowly disappearing with the time passing by..

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Dette var et fargerikt og flott innslag på ukas benk Rune, her bør både store og små bli glade, farger er pent, selv på benker så lyser det opp. Ha en fortsatt fin helg :)

Gallow said...

I finally posted another bench of the week:
