A beautiful view coming over somewhere


Senior Member
In a documentary, someone is watching Florida in a plane. He says:
"We've got a beautiful view, coming over Florida."
Is this different than "We see a beautiful view on Florida"?
Why is "coming over" used here?
Thank you in advance.

    Because the plane is coming over Florida from somewhere else. It isn't the view that's coming. I agree that the sentence structure could be clearer, but people don't always figure out their sentence structures properly in advance when they speak informally.

    We see a beautiful view on Florida.:thumbsdown:

    "On" doesn't fit there but "of" does.

    We see a beautiful view of Florida.:thumbsup:
