Lagoon Sunset Views

I was kicking myself for not having lugged the tripod with me to Burano this day; I would have shot these with HDR for a more dramatic contrast with the Venice buildings, campanile, and rooflines that sit under this dramatic sunset.  But in retrospect that’s a “happy accident”, as the slight silhouetting I think emphasizes the romantic, mysterious qualities of Venice at night and in the evening.

These were shot at f5.6, 1/800th, between 260mm and 300mm depending.  Any time you can watch the sunset on Burano, you know it’s good to be alive.
