The lights and the shimmering water make this one of my favorite Venice images I’ve taken recently. It was late at night, the city was asleep except for the odd vaporetto idling by (the stern marker light from one is visible in the lower left). Quiet, stoic, enveloping.
No better place to be on a crisp fall evening. Be sure to click to see it full size!
Sunset shot with a fisheye on a 35mm prime lens. Fun time to be up there!
It’s snowing today, and spring feels pretty far off at the moment. I’d much rather be here taking in this view on a 60* day enjoying an Adriatic breeze and contemplating a plate of seafood risotto and tagliatelle with cuttlefish ink sauce. Wouldn’t you? Ahhh, Venice…
Nothing earth-shattering for regular readers, but Kiss From The World is a great little site and I want to support their efforts to show people the importance of cultural exchange. I did put up the obligatory smoochie picture of me and the wife up on top of the belltower at San Giorgio Maggiore as well. What can I say, Venice just makes you feel amorous! And that’s a good thing.
Update: they removed it, saying it was too generic. I must concede I find that rather disappointing–I was sharing a unique insight about Venice that, when you think about it seems obvious, but really, really isn’t. You’d think that’d be the kind of insight they want to have.
Update again: it’s back, was a misunderstanding.
