Going from one end of the Grand Canal to the other, up to the Ponte degli Scalzi, which connects the Venetian districts of Santa Croce and Cannaregio, and was built in 1934 by engineer Eugenio Miozzi, who also designed the Ponte dell’ Accadémia. The design is inspired by the famous Rialto Bridge, and its single arch body is constructed completely from beautiful Istrian white marble. Like the Ponte dell’ Accadémia, the bridge substituted an older bridge built by the Austrians in 1858.
As with my previous upload, I was teetering on the end of a wooden jetty when I shot V1! V2 also shows one of the waterbuses or vaporetti as they are known. Several services are operated, including the full length of the Grand Canal and to the other islands in the lagoon…and they run to time, too!

V1: 1/160 sec, F11, 20mm, ISO 100
V2: 1/125 sec, F11, 13mm, ISO 100
Looks a little better seen large if you have the time.

Two excellent shots, Trev, the first showing the bigger picture so nicely and the second the closer shot. You have had lovely weather there and how well the sunshine brings out all the colour in the buildings and colours up the canal waters. And of course your narrative is always so interesting and adds so much more.
Ronnie.

Great images. V1 is my favourite. There's a lovely softness in the shadows that I like very much.

3 more excellent shots from Venice but this time have to agree with Ann and find the posts very much in the way in the shot . Not sure whether anything could have been done about them in your composition Trev....Phil

Another couple of cracking Venice shots Trev that really define the place. An excellent series you've put together documenting the mood and feel of the place. Chaz.
