blue highways

I took this photo from the back of the motorcycle this summer on a Sunday afternoon near St. Francis, Minnesota...you can see the top of the windshield in the bottom right. Roads are my favorite subject, next to the sky, to photograph and this one has both, as well as visual proof of how hard the winters are on the roads around here! See more sky views at Sky Watch Friday.

Speaking of rough winter months, I noticed this specimen near the apartment grounds where I live. This bench is never covered and is visited by all manner of weather and, except for some splinters, it appears to be nicely weathered and sturdy. You'll find more benches on Rune's site Visual Norway where he posts his Bench of the Week and gladly accepts others' photos of benches they've seen recently. That makes Friday even more fun!

Nice photo. I enlarged the photo by clicking on it and I thought the one cloud right above the road was pretty neat.

Nice road/sky photo, but even better old weathered bench, it has seen a lot of days under the sun and sky.

Love it! You capture it all. Your roads get it worse than ours do, but I can relate to the winter wear and tear.

The round runs into the depth of the picture - and than where? :-)

A sturdy bench indeed. Weathered and with a lot of character. I bet it could tell a story or two.

Nice skywatch picture; it combined two of my favorite things: roads and clouds. Have a great Friday.

Great photos, always love those pretty blue skies and from the road is a great perspective. That's a lovely old bench shot too. Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting my blog.
