Falling Water

Christmas trees can be found in many places in Ottawa, such as in the atrium of this office building.


A waterfall spills down beside it.

  4. Its beautiful. I can hear the sound of the water.
    There is a botanical garden 'Sher Baug' in Mahabaleshwar( a hill station about 5 hrs drive from Mumbai) where there is a waterfall on steps, just like that, and we have to enter the garden bare foot by climbing the steps through the soft gushing water.

  5. Very nice. Quite similar to the one we have at home. Except for the waterfall. Oh - and the size of the tree. Possibly the number of decorations too. Good photo!

  12. Unusual and beautiful. Especially with the waterfall. Looks like it's also a place where people can sit and relax or eat!

  13. @Cloudia: it does, yes.

    @Linda: it is soothing, and a nice spot to have a cup of tea.

    @Jen: thanks!

    @Tomas: yes, many people are posting Christmas related stuff.

    @Mumbaii: Now that I wouldn't mind doing!

    @Mike: this is a good sized tree!

    @Marianne: I certainly think so.

    @Halcyon: so do I.

    @Beatrice: the lighting feels a bit off to me, and that might be a factor.

    @Stefan: and this one's artificial too.

    @Tamago: there are lots of people working in this complex, so it's a good spot for that.

    @VP: it's a feature I've always liked.

    @Beth: I've never anyone do that.

    @Lowell: yes, there are terraces surrounding the waterfall with chairs and low tables. It's very busy at lunchtime.

  16. Beautiful tree and the waterfall is really interesting flowing down the 'steps' like that. So tempting for naughty people to run through. :)

  17. Très joli et doux ... j'entends l'eau qui ruisselle ... (Comprends-tu le français William ?)

  18. That is a very pretty one. I love it when a tree is just full of ornaments.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Now whoever set this up had a good eye. the water fall itself although simple certainly catches your eye.

  20. An atrium would be a must in the winter. A warm place to be with daylight all around and the sound of flowing water, perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It must provide some pleasant ambiance.

  22. That's a wonderful christmas tree, and I love the place next to the waterfall. Great choice!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Such a beautiful tree to eat beside!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Very nice. Christmas trees always make me feel like a little kid.

  25. @Stuart: it's quite a big space, so not only the Christmas tree but the trees that are in it year round have plenty of space.

    @Jane and Chris: definitely.

    @Tex: it certainly does.

    @Pamela: the thought has occasionally crossed my mind!

    @Anna: ma francais ce n'etait pas bien... but I do understand the comment. I've let my French fall out of use.

    @Sharon: as do I.

    @Red: it's such a pretty water feature.

    @Judy: I've sat up on the terraces with a cup of tea from time to time, just relaxing to the sound of water.

    @Birdman: it does.

    @Jan: it's a nice perch for the tree.

    @Cheryl: yes, it is.

    @Pat: me too.

  27. The Crystal Palace in Perth did a fundraiser with different groups or businesses decorating trees. We drove by in the dark one night, and it looks lovely. I haven't been. Bah humbug! I honestly should, but Hubby's back is out and we're sticking close to home.

  28. The water must give a nice peaceful sound to the whole scene - lovely tree!

    ReplyDelete
  29. RedPat already voiced my thoughts! 'Twould be nice to sit there for awhile!
