Thought I’d resist the obvious title, and use the original song title! Back on the main island of Venice, travelling on a vaporetto down the Grand Canal, this was grab shot hanging out over the side and looking back towards the Ponte Rialto. Just a pity the gondolier wasn’t wearing the traditional stripy shirt…
Hope you’re all having a great weekend Smile

1/160 sec, F11, 28mm, ISO 100
Looks a little better seen large + F11 if you have the time.

A beautifully composed and classic Venetian landscape, exactly what comes to mind when I think of Venice. Excellent shot, Trev.
