"Sunset in Venice"

Photo of a beautiful sunset in Venice, Italy.
(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...

Camera and settings used to capture this image:
    Camera: Casio EX-Z500
    Focal length: 11mm
    Shutter Speed: 1/200 second

    Another great photo. What a wonderful way to see the places in the world that we cannot visit in person.

    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!
