Happy New Year

By ChazB      
Having a break from the Galapagos shots to bring you a photo from my trip to Venice at New Year. I captured almost this same view last winter at sunrise with the mist rolling in over the lagoon (here) , so I was looking to capture something different this time. It's such a well-known view looking out towards San Giorgio Maggiore with the gondolas in the foreground, so it's hard to capture a different take on it to all the thousands of other versions out there! This was taken probably an hour before sunset and I decided to include the algae-covered steps leading down, which I don't think I have seen anywhere before.

Thanks for looking and best wishes to you all for 2016!
