Solitude On The Bluff

or is it “Solitude In The buff”? I can never remember. =)
Enjoying some quiet time in the shade above Oregon City. Hope you all can enjoy some quiet time this weekend, too.

    Loving those red leaves. Those benches look so lonely. I'd definitely enjoy a quiet afternoon sitting here and admiring the scene. Magical, Kurt. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! (with the kitty!)

    Well, I think those bench slats would be just a bit too cold if you were sitting on them in the buff. Maybe down in Southern California. I'm sure you'd be nice and comfortable...until you were arrested of course.

    There are so many things to like in this photo. The red leaves look like you painted them in, they're so cool looking. Plus the huge diagonal line, and the tips of those brances along the top, give the eye so many nice things to see. It's an excellent scene. It does make me wish, just a little bit, that there was a person sitting on the bench. Hmmm, maybe in the buff. :-)

    mmm, that looks a little bit cold for sitting there in the buff, isn't it?
    but still it is an amazing still and gorgeous scene.
    love those golden red tones and the perspective is also amazing.
    I liked very much that you didn't crop the leaves of the tree on the foreground. It adds more depth to the scene

    Absolutely no "quiet time" on my calendar last month or this month! Have you noticed how infrequently I am posting? Grrrrrrrr.....starving for some camera time! Thank you for your encouraging comments about the 70-200mm f/4 IS USM. I am so glad I made the investment. I continue to be amazed at what it can do. And thanks for this beautifully composed "help yourself bench" and lovely little private niche of Portland. You really have a wonderful way of finding such delightful Portland urban hideaways - as well as its unique quirks! ;-)
