Gondolas

By TrevBatWCC    
Couldn’t come up with a more original title! Just your bog-standard shot taken on my first day wandering around Venice, really. Taken stood at the end of Piazzetta San Marco, near the Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace), looking across the Canale di San Marco, towards the Isola di San Giórgio Maggiore, it’s a great spot to take in the splendid view, and enjoy a bit of breeze coming in off the sea on the one of the ‘cooler’ days at 28°.

Looks a little better seen large if you have the time.

1/125 sec, F11, 18mm, ISO 100
Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Elements 6, with some assistance from Topaz Adjust.

Shadows rather than reflections in the water, I think - aren't they fabulously green!

A lovely reminder of our visits there. I wonder if the place has changed since I last saw it. I'll just have to go back to find out. A lovely reminder Trev. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your images.

Hope you had a great holiday, Trev. This is a lovely shot for a first posting from Venice...very nicely composed and I like the vibrant blues of the gondolas set against the green of the lagoon. Looking forward to more!

No, you're not , but I am going there next month, so you might be the only person after that GrinGrinGrin.
This is a wonderful capture Trev, so typically Venice - can't wait to see these scenes for myself next month!

Thanks for the tip about the Campanile, Trev. We will check this out, but unlikely to get there early because we're staying in Lake Garda and planning on visiting Venice by train! I'm beginning to think we should have factored in an overnight stay....
