Award Shortlist   

A Gathering of Gondolas

By TrevBatWCC    
First of all, I’d like to thank phil99 for his User Award on my ‘Roman Forum’, and to davey_griffo for his User Award on my ‘Just one Cornetto…’. Two UAs in less than one week – I’m over the moon! Smile
Don’t know that there is a collective noun for a group of gondolas, so thought I’d invent one! Taken from one of the wooden jetties used for embarking / disembarking the gondolas, the line of gondolas seemed to go on forever. The Basilica di Santa Maria can be seen in the distance, and the two 12th century columns at the end of Piazetta San Marco can be seen to the right.
As mentioned yesterday, I’ll be meeting up with fellow EPZers Lillian and Ruthannette for the annual Carnival. If there are any other EPZers out there who’ll be in Venice at the same time, we’d love to meet up with you there – the more the merrier Smile
I see that jenniealexander and her husband are going to be there the same week, and have since heard from Lillian that they will be on the same flight as her and Ruth out to Venice, so that’s great news! Smile

Have just been looking at Lillian's set from the area, and now your's pops up, Trev. As I look out on another dreich day with wet slush falling out the sky, I just try to imagine myself in a place like this and your images help transport me. I don't know if there is a collective for more than one gondola! A fine image again, and I'm glad your last two did so well. Have a great time away!
Regards, Ronnie.

This is a stunning shot. The diagonal line of the gondolas and that rich coloring make this one stellar image. I hope you all have a grand time at the carnival. I'll look forward to seeing the photos.

Hi Trev, beautiful colours I love that shade of blue. Well captured Trev. Love the way they all line up and the angle you chose. Have another go at painting never give up this would look lovely painted. Thanks for your encouragement.
