    In Canada the National Parks people have placed red Muskoka arm chairs in various unusual places in the parks for several years. There’s always a good view from where they’re placed.

    This chair is a lot bigger and placed by the roadside in south east Iceland. You could say it has a view…

    Great shot Rob. Not only aesthetically pleasing but just plain fun to look at. A series of “Canadian National Park Red Chair” images taken at their different locations could be a fun project to put together.

      Thanks Dave. I do have a number of Canadian Red Chair photos of ones I’ve stumbled upon. It would be a good project although expensive and time consuming.

    we rode by this a few times and had a good laugh.  was it bolted to the rock?

    Yes it was bolted to the rock. I’m sure someone would take it if it wasn’t. We all most drove by but decided it would be a fun image. I mean…why not?

    I think it’s a really nice photo. The use of the red chair to draw the eye, the direction of the sitter’s face to lead the eye, the unusual use of a chair at all, using the cloud as a frame,the drama of the mountainscape itself, everything nice and sharp. I love it.

    What a lovely view! I’d be really happy to sit in that chair.
