Venetian Sunshine

By Lillian  
Taken at the Carnival in Venice last year!
Have withdrawal symptoms as should have been there now...Next year!!

Been going over the hard drives sorting out, and thought
maybe bring some colour to these winter days...hope that you
will enjoy a mini series from Venice
It was a great time there with friends from EPZ.

Sorry not been around a friend passed away and the funeral was yesterday

Great colours and details in this image and as always, perfectly captured, but goodness, how I would not want to have to walk around dressed like this! Given the strong winds here, I'd be half way down the valley before you could click that camera!! WinkGrin

That wonderful circle sings out from the thumbnails, Lillian, and I like the fact that I can just see part of a gondola in the background. Mind you, anyone else would know it was from VeniceSad.
Looking forward to more.
So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.
