Oriental Bay Views - Cam Theme - 16

"You can't beat Wellington on a good day."
So the saying goes and I couldn't agree more.
Enjoy the last PetesCam views for 2006 from my favourite Wellington spot...

The CAM takes a break for a few weeks - until early 2007.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the updates as much as I have updating the pics.
Here's to a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year...

The Pohutukawa (New Zealand Christmas Tree) are all in bloom at the moment and nothing says "Merry Christmas" quite like the vivid red flowers. So here's some blooms for the homesick Kiwi's in the northern hemisphere.

There are 11 pics in this week's "CAM". Click on the image for a larger view.

This is my 'special' panorama shot of Wellington, New Zealand.
If you click on the photo it will open up to a large pic so you can (I assume...) enjoy and appreciate the scene in more detail.
This is looking from Oriental Parade on the left, to the central city and around to the 'cake tin' of Wellington's finest stadium on the far right.
You just can't beat Wellington on a fine day...
View from Oriental Parade looking over Oriental Bay and up to Mount Victoria.
The rotund building on the 'beach' is The Fisherman's Table restaurant.
The view from Oriental Parade across the bay to the central business district of Wellington City.
I found out yesterday that the fountain was gifted to the city by one of its passionate citizens.
Wellington's tallest buiding, The Majestic is on the far left. The second tallest building is the black one to the right of centre. I recon they should paint a huge silver fern along the facade...
The view from Oriental Parade across the bay to the north west of Wellington City. The "beehive" building in the centre of the photo is the New Zealand parliament and office of the Prime Minister.
And now for something completely different...
Architecture detail - on Oriental Parade, Wellington, New Zealand
When I was taking the picture I heard someone comment, "It looks like a palace..."
If money didn't matter I would definitely put in a firm offer to the owners of this 'block' on Oriental Parade.
My personal verdict of this Oriental Parade apartment block is still out...
Oriental Parade apartments all over the place.
Each one unique and all have the same fantastic Wellington views in common.
Oriental Parade - stacks on the mill... but it still looks good - especially the views from the windows out over Oriental Bay and across the city of Wellington
Oriental Parade - it's nice to see some of the older style houses still surviving the demands of modern architecture. Even more interesting when colour is added...
