When I hurt my back a couple of weeks ago, one of the many things I couldn’t do was (easily) stand up out of a chair. This led me to move to a seat that looks directly out of our front window.
When we had renovations done a few years ago we added an enormous window that looks directly out to Cook Strait (about 5 Km away). Since we’re at the top of a hill we look down over greenery and distant suburbs to the sea.
It gives me enormous delight to look out this window, though if I won Lotto I’d have the ugly power pole and power lines removed. Yesterday the sea was a dark blue, while the sun would emerge at times from scattered cloud cover to illuminate the greenery nearby: puka trees, Tikouka (cabbage trees) and flax.
I tried various methods for taking photos. None exactly reflect what I see when I sit here and work, as of course my human vision encompasses the rest of the room, the window itself, and so on, but the shot attached here does pretty much show what my brain was focussing on.
