Its a work view!

Posted by
Linerberry (Herne Bay, United Kingdom) on 5 October 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

On the 5th floor where I work this is the splendid sight that greets myself and my colleagues in the morning! The River Avon flowing gently through the morning mist in the Botanical Gardens. Whilst to the left Christchurch City starts so wake.......... .

Oh Liners I think this is my favourite out of all your photos so far! The colours are just gorgeous - such warm oranges and yellows and lovely rich greens. You captured this perfectly, I particularly like the reflections in the river. I'm trying to picture which part of the city you must work in - is it near Hagley Park/The Gardens?

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Lovely colour. At first glance I thought it was an Autumn shot, but of course it's spring there you lucky people.

@grouser: Indeed it is a spring morning:-) Hard to tell though sometimes!

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

How stunning, the glories of...I'm thinking Fall, although.....right from your work window, wow...sigh

JJ from Jersey City, United States

what beautiful spring colors, I love the faint traces of fog or mist, and the reflections in the Avon, so beautiful

and to be honest envious the view from my work wiindow is of built up Queens across the river and to make it even worse I huge Pepsi sign which is frustrating as a coke fan LOL

5 Oct 2008 10:44am

@JJ: Thanks JJ! Sorry about your view....I have to say its one of the attractions of working on the ward that I do, I have thought of moving jobs and then just couldn't bare the thought of losing the view!!!!

MadScientist from Düsseldorf, Germany

Simply marvellous! Like the others I was thinking this was an autumn photo, but not only do you have this fine view but also you have spring. I don't repeat my quote from yesterday that I'm envious.

@MadScientist: Thank you ms...to make you more envious, on a clear day you can see the Southern Alps covered in snow all year round!~!!!

Those gardens are beautiful Liners, it's Springtime :)

5th floor huh...... you must be high up in the company :P

5 Oct 2008 10:57pm

@Observing: Thanks Mike:-) Depends on what you call high up lol!!! It is the top floor:-)) But then its a hospital so I could be anything lol:-)

Eric Fry from Houston, TX, United States

What a beautiful view, Liners. I'd find it hard to work there, though, I'd spend too much time staring out the window!

6 Oct 2008 12:12am

@Eric Fry: Funnily enough I have moments were I stare out of the window....then I hear a patient shouting "nurse" and the moment is shattered LOL:-))

JoeB from Brampton, Canada

What a great view, I would have trouble containing myself, I'd probably break out of the 5th floor.

6 Oct 2008 1:25am

@JoeB: I have thought it might be nice to take off from here and fly for a while over the trees:-))

KZC from Sydney, Australia

I love the colour of the trees... It is good to see the straight line of the water going by.
