Riflessioni, Venezia

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!

Ghosts of Zanipolo

One of the perks of frequently being in Venice in the off season–the sparse crowds at night in popular campi and piazze afford the chance to get one or two folks off in the distance for a long exposure shot.

By dialing back the clarity and upping the masking, you get this ghostly effect that I really like.

Venezia: Castello At Night

One of our favorite things to do in Venice is walk around late at night when the cruise ship crowds are gone and the city is quiet; only the locals are milling around having a nightcap at the prosecco and spritz bars still open and mystery of the place is revealed.

It’s magic.
