When my wife and I were in Switzerland in the summer of 2007 I was really impressed with the use of bright colour as an accent to the outdoor environment. On the West Coast vibrant colour is generally not used outside everything blends together. Benches tend to be a deep forest green. The benches that are in this lakeside park in Romanshorn were yellow, red, blue, and green all beautiful clear colours just like this yellow bench.
This is a view of the bench looking out onto the Bodensee (lake Boden).
The vibrant yellow of this park bench against the rich green grass is incredibly beautiful.
