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.

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!
