Lakeside Art

Several outings to the lakeside town of Montreux have amazed me
with their sculptures and other original art forms.
I particularly liked these huge red sculpted metal wings.

This very tall metal bird is full of character.
Even the little sparrows used him as a useful perch.
I can count seven of them!

Window frames have been used in beautifully decorative ways.
Climbing plants have been incorporated to make them part of the scenery
and this one has a statue nearby.

Colourful shutters hang from a tree

I really like this statue of a man reclining on long poles
against a background of mountains
called Les Dents du Midi.

A crystal ball reflecting an upside down image of the surroundings.

A yellow metal sculpture which seems to be blowing in the wind.

A bench to sit and admire the view and more hanging window frames.

An open door and frame and a view on the lake and mountains.

Modern art framing a steam boat in the distance.

Colourful Begonia flowers and three window frames.
Such a clever idea!

I'm so glad that I visited the lakeside in Montreux more than once.
There was so much to see.

Framing a small boat with palm tree silhouettes.

There were striking and very large Hibuscus blooms growing in the gardens.

There have been many lovely outings in August and September.
This is just one of them.
There are so many photographs waiting to be shown!

I can't believe that it will be the first day of October tomorrow.
September has been beautiful and mostly warm with wonderful lighting.
Today it was 19C which is still very warm for the season.
