"Sunset in Venice"
|(Click on the photo for a larger view)
Venice is a city like no other. The primary means of transportation
are the famous gondolas (Venetian boats) which transport passengers
and light cargo around the city via its extensive network of canals,
and her architecture is extremely beautiful and ornate. But what
would one expect? This is Italy after all.
Today's picture is yet another gorgeous image captured by a
photographer who wishes to remain anonymous. It features some of
that stunning Venetian architecture in silhouette thanks to a
very bright and colorful setting sun. A very lovely sight indeed...

Stunning image of one of the world's most beautiful places. Although
in many photos it would be a distraction, the lamppost really helps
frame the shot in this one. Superb photo in every way!
