An almost natural black and white bench

"Don't sit for too long"


This is my contribution to Dragonstar's The weekend in Black and White.

I wouldn't sit - no way.
Love the built-in grain though.

Dragonstar said...

Sitting would spoil the patterns! The length of those ice crystals makes them look like a decorative fringe.

Det er nok ikke lurt å sitte for lenge her nei... men det er nok ikke samme problem i dag. Du verden så det har blåst og regnet i natt. Jeg er ikke lei meg for det. Jeg trenger definitivt noen dager å tine på. Kaldt på jobben, kaldt her hjemme, så jeg har gått med skuldrene oppe under ørene de siste ukene. Man får vondt av det!!
Bildet ditt er knalltøft, men benken er mye mer innbydene en varm sommerdag;)
Ha en fin lørdag:)

Dina said...

So many tiny crystals. Great effect!

Love, love, love this. Simply perfection!

Hans HB said...

Kjempebilde, RuneE. Flott sett og knipset!
Frostrumpe er ikke godt nei!! Ikke lurt å sette seg ned der i det hele tatt...

John said...

There's some real rime ice there; luckily it has got warmer here, so no snow near London.

REJEN said...

Smukt, men kan give frost i rumpen...;-D

Gry said...

Du har dine ord i behold! Den var nesten litt fientlig den benken! Men det var jo fantastisk flotte iskrystaller da.

God helg!

Malyss said...

I'm glad you pictured it , because it's the kind of bench I will surely never find around here! :o)

Barbara said...

I wouldn't sit on it but I would take a picture of it - love that ice formation, such great texture and pattern in this shot.

Karen said...

Excellent textures in this shot. I feel cold just looking at it.

Carver said...

That's wonderful. I love what snow and ice can do to outdoor furniture visually. Your photography captured it so well.

Paulie said...

Interesting! Great capture!!!!

Barbara Martin said...

It wouldn't be too bad to sit on this bench in a long wool coat. Love that hoarfrost.
It hasn't been cold enough here yet for that.

Marka said...

"Your buns might stick if you sit too long!"

;) Cheers!

ArneA said...

Og jeg som trodde det var et barberblad.
Abstrakte photos bør bli din neste greie
Flott

Cildemer said...

Amazing shot!
Brrr! And no, I wouldn't sit on that bench!
Thanks for sharing;o)

Have a beautiful weekend****

VALKYRIEN said...

Her trenger man termodress for å sette seg ned! Men godt sett og for noen flotte frostkrystaller!

michael bird said...

Cool stuff! Cold stuff?

Kenneth Larsson said...

I like the crisp snow very much. It looks really cold. Have a nice day! :-)

imac said...

What a beauty - my friend.

Dagrun said...

Wow. Det her var rått! Knallbra!

Lara @ Uproad said...

little ice teeth :), looks fierce!

Lucy Corrander said...

Don't sit at all, I'd say! Not so much because you'd get stuck but because you'd spoil the patterns in the frost.

ooooeeee...my butt's cold!

Viola said...

Den benken så aldeles forfrossen ut.. setter man seg oppå den med sine bare tær (hehe), så vil man nok kjenne at det er vinter ja....! ;)

Nydelig vakkert bilde, med korn og tagger av snø og rim..!

Flott dag ønskes deg! :)

Ken Mac said...

oh I love this

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Det blir nok en kald rast hvis man skal sette baken nedpå der :) Men et flott bilde var det.

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

bbbbbrrrrrr - i'm shivering!

James said...

I think I would be stuck if I sat. Very COOL photo. :)

Ann said...

So you take you photography very seriously. In Singapore, they use the term, " Play Play."
That's me, I just play play.

How do you celebrate Christmas?

Mr. Paparazzo said...

Awesome photo, congratulations!

Henrietta said...

That would be very cold to sit but it is beautiful to watch.

T. Becque said...

Wonderful! Although the least likely place I'd sit! :)
