    I had the fortune of visiting Venice again last weekend. At this time of year the city is not so overcrowded as in summer. It allows for more peace and quietness; to get closer to and to explore the pittoresque surroundings.

    The churches and islands are fabulous but it is also very rewarding to walk the backyards and witness the rare beauty of these old buildings (even though most would be in need for some serious renovation by today's standards).

    I have picked this capture primarily because I like light and the colors. Comments without graphics are very much appreciated. Thank you!

    There is a painting from another artist inspired from this photograph available here.

      Though the pink is almost shocking I am still enchanted by this image. The viwer is almost pitched into that water

      It has a kind of magic realism

      That is the magic of Venice

      the foul smell of the water and the crumbling masonry cannot detract from the enchantment and romance of the place.

      This one captures something new that I have not seen before

      Unsurprisingly it has much attention

      well derserved

      Yes, the light is really special here if not to say it's perfect!
      I would love to do some pano shots there but I doubt that it's a good idea with so many tourists walking around...
