Do You Have a Gorgeous View?

I wish this were the view from my front porch! It's actually the view from a farm stay at a cabin I visited in New Zealand a few years ago.

I also love the view from my home's deck, but I've lived in a few other places where the view was less than desirable. What's it like at your casa?

Yes, and I love a gorgeous view at home or at work. Great scenery usually makes your mood better.

Considering I live close to the city my view is mostly my apt backyard which is full of plush trees, guess it could be worse.

I live on a gorgeous lake framed by mountains in New Hampshire. It's pretty fantastic.

I have a great view, although it's nothing like that photo. From my balcony, I can see most of Philadelphia. In one direction, I see the whole skyline. In the other direction, I see the Delaware River and Ben Franklin Bridge. On the 4th of July, I can see about 6 or 7 different fireworks displays.

Not as scenic as that...but the natural landscape & nature sounds out my back door is very "zen"-like. Makes me happy! :)

no. but i like our yard, lol. i've only lived where i had a really great view one time, but it wasn't of nature, and it was so noisy i couldn't open my windows. i would love a view like the one above, so peaceful!

Outside my window, there are parked cars. Really, the parking spaces are right in front of my window, which sometimes freaks me out when a car pulls in really quickly. When the cars aren't there, I get a great view of... our dumpster. Nice! Oh, the first apartment on your own is always a lovely place, isn't it?

Yes we have gorgeous views. While it's not like the one in the picture above lol we love it. We can see The Strip fromm our backyard, also the mountains beyond it. Plus the mountains to the West of us where we can see Red Rock Canyon as well.. the sunsets are fabulous! And The Strip lit up at night is awesome and it's perfect for fireworks events we can see them from the house. We also have a park directly behind us so there is alot of green grass and trees in our immediate view (a bonus that it's beautiful grass that we don't have to maintain).

I live in a little neighborhood all by itself in the flatlands just east of the foothills of the Rockies. From any of my windows, you can't really see much. but if you just walk outside, or even better, head west to the end of the block, it's gorgeous! Mountains, horses running, unobstructed views.
