Bench with a beach view

April is benches with views, for Jude’s challenge. Here goes for another bench with a rather marvellous view – taken probably nearly two decades ago, from the cliffs around Beer in Devon. I dare say that bench is still there, and the view much the same, except the cliffs are probably more eroded. This photograph would have been taken on my Nikon FM2, and of course, on film…scanned in a while ago.

It makes me very nostalgic for the walking I was able to do then…. autre temps and all that…

Take yourself for a stroll over at Jude’s blog here, to see more benches.


  1. I love this picture, as the effect of scanning from film makes it look somewhat like a painting. It also adds to my memories of just how good a 35MM SLR like the FM2 was at taking great shots.(At least when the photographer knew what she was doing…)
    A real cracker Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. That’s some view and a lovely photograph Sue!

      Thanks, Adrian…the light was lovely, the sun in the right direction….I used to love that walk when I was in that area, sadly beyond my abilities these days. But hey, I have the memories!

  3. A lovely scene, Sue. Photos are wonderful at bringing back good memories. 🙂

  4. Gorgeous view this Sue 🙂

  5. Aha! I know it well, not much changes in Beer. I go regularly in summer to do a craft fair and I love it. There are several posts on my site about Beer if you put it in the search box. i don’t think there has been much erosion there, compared to nearby cliff, these are a different stone altogether. I’m glad you have good memories of Devon 🙂

    enticing indeed – has the added magic of a film capture

  7. Oh yes I could easily sit on this bench for a while, and would probably need to on the way back up the hill 🙂

  8. A proper good bench with a view, that, Sue! 🙂 🙂

  9. I could imagine sitting there enjoying the view. Very attractive framing.

  10. you want to melt into it. What a gorgeous view and image Sue!

  11. Would love to be on that bench enjoying that spectacular view!
