Not a bad view. Not at all...
Then again, sometimes it's a bit too conducive for daydreaming.
I wouldn't trade it though, and I've had much worse. The absolute worst was the duck pond.
Once, at an old job, I was promised a view of a pond with ducks. After the new workspace was set up, they made a mistake. Not only would I have had to crane my neck to see the duck pond, but the cube wall climbed so high it obscured any window view.
Keep in mind that was the same job where, after making cutbacks and letting a ton of people go, they put in a pool table. The pool table was right outside the president's office, and nobody was allowed to use it, because they should be working. So this pool table was just a testament to how poorly run the company was, a beacon that proclaimed "look what the recovered salaries of your fallen comrades has brought us. Look, but don't touch."
Most depressing pool table ever.
I'll take this view, though. I like it.
