A bench in the woods

Taking a walk along the trail that circles the pond at Maybury State Park, I came across a bench set just off the trail and among the trees.  It looks like a nice place to take in the beautiful park, gather your thoughts, have a quiet conversation, or simply listen to nature.  With the afternoon sun getting lower, I liked how the two parallel tree shadows reach out to hold the bench.

Driving through wooded areas and open fields east northeast of Gaylord where elk herds are known to be, this tunnel into the trees caught my eye.  The late morning sun on the autumn green leaves and deep shadows gave beautiful depth to the scene.
