Ponte di Rialto

By TrevBatWCC    
Crossing over the Ponte di Rialto and turning right takes you onto the Fondamenta Vin Castello, which runs alongside the Grand Canal. This was taken from as far as you can get along this walkway without falling in the canal! I timed it just right to catch the gondola coming along, but would have preferred it without the water taxi getting into the shot. As mentioned previously, it was foggy there all day, but at least not thick fog, just enough to add a bit of atmosphere.

Many thanks to Lillian for her User Award on my previous upload The Marforio Dragon , most appreciated 🏆👍

Gondola looks as if it's floating above the water rather than on it. Bet it was choppy with that water taxi speeding by. Smile

The mist adds a lovely softness to the scene Trev - hard to get the scene you'd really like - these taxi drivers should knows better!

A little choppy for a few secs! The red/white poles add a bit of colour to the cold image.

I like this shot a lot and you timed it well to capture the gondola just where it is.

Boxing Day is a time for blowing away the cobwebs, and this looks cold enough for that. I assume that the locals were all sensibly tucked up indoors with their central heating!

Looks like a cold day for a boat ride. Only the tourists would be out on a day like that.
