Early viewing

By moiral
Morning all. Lillian and I decided to get up early to go out and get the beautiful light on the buildings. These 2 shots were taken from the Rialto Bridge at around 7.30am. Looking along the Grand Canal from both sides of the bridge. Did not have to struggle through the crowds which would amass there later in the day. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

The cool light of early day very well captured in these images along the Grand Canal, Moira, with the rooftops just catching the morning sun.
