Default What can you see out of the window?

Its been really lovely weather in Wellington this week and I took a picture of the view outside my office and sent it to my friends and family back home. For me it was another of those "yup, I live here now" moments :-)

Lets have some fun and share pix of whatever you can see out of the window from your place of work.

Here's my offering:

Oooooh purdy harbour.

Right now I can see a beautifully hazy full moon.

It's supposed to be nice tomorrow, I'll try to remember to take my camera to work.

It's all dark outside where I work right now. Of course, I'm not there now as that would be silly - it being 11pm and all - but even if I were it would still be dark IYSWIM? Rubbish views in summer, but winter brings the snow capped Southern Alps into view - gimme 4 months and I'll stick up a pic on here. Don't forget to nudge me to do it tho' else I'll forget

I'm the new girl at work so still on my best behaviour - best not take the camera in just yet. However I have a corner office with views over fields of sheep and cows, looking at the hills in the distance.

Quite glad I moved really
