Venice Canal on Arrival.

This is my way of moving past Venice, Italy with a look at my first views along the Grand Canal heading for Lido, Italy.




The light was perfect and all my photos were amazing to me. This was after being up for 32 hours with a cat nap.

You are right Tom, the light was perfect. What wonderful buildings. I have never been there so it is great to see these marvellous pictures. Thanks for sharing.

The lighting is good Tom. The architecture amazing. It's so hard to believe the buildings sprouting out of the water. Getting around by boat must have seemed like heaven for you. Did you drop a line?
The flight is the worst part.

It would seem to me that one can never really move past Venice. Just gorgeous.

Gorgeous pictures of one amazing and mysterious city.

I like the sunset photos-but these are my favorite. Something about the color of the buildings along side of the water and sky that makes it all just pop.
