A Venice Canal Close-Up (Weekend Reflections # 124)

Venice, Italy (Reflected buildings)

It almost looks like I was standing in the boat but I was actually standing on a little bridge above the water.

Awesome photo James! Just enough movement inthe water to make it look a bit surreal.

Sivinden said...

Artful "watercolor" reflections, - a wonderful picture!

Another delightful shot.

Awesome! Have a great weekend James.

J'ai mis du temps à comprendre pourquoi toute l'image était à l'envers alors que le bateau est à l'endroit! :o)
Cela ferait un joli tableau souvenir!

Jen said...

An extraordinary picture--beautiful colors.

Une Venise inhabituelle, dans les couleurs froides ... C'est l'hiver sur les canaux ...

Beautiful James, simply beautiful, one of your loveliest photos... Can see you had a fine time in Venice, it must be simply paradise for reflections, looks like you must have had a field day...

Will be digging through some photos to see if I can't maybe find a reflection to share before the weekend is out... always a pleasure to stop by here.

Great reflection!

great reflection. How did you manage taking gret shots without a lot of tourists on them?

Kass said...

That is a beautiful photo!

Catherine said...

Your shots from Italy are beautiful...

Rebecca said...

Oh, that's neat. I like how the windows look in the water!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Just beautiful! There is a feeling you can almost be in the reflection. It seems so intimate!

Emille said...

Isn't Venice a great place for reflections? Water everywhere you go:)

Lew said...

Beautiful! Venice is certainly the place to go for water reflections.

James: I can just imagine my husband standing on one of those little bridges in Venice — his dream destination — taking photos of the boats, the ripples, and the reflections. One of these days...
Meanwhile, your photo is fabulous. Venice is fast becoming one of my dream destinations, too.

Beautiful colors and motion in the water, and so near.

If I was a better artist, I would LOVE to paint that scene! Beautiful colors and I love the perspective! Thanks for a great photo!

Laura said...

The ripples make it seem painterly.

This looks like a gorgeous interpretation by an artist's oils. Even better, it is the photographer artist, James!

Venice makes a camera happy.

Bises,

Sara Chapman said...

Very beautiful. I bet you have more reflections in your archives than most people!

Jientje said...

Oooooh I love that one, very nice composition. I love how you included the boat. I'd love to visit Venice one day, I've only spent one day there, and would love to go back!

Gattina said...

Very nice ! it changes from the usual view of the Venice canals !

Cezar and Léia said...

Great reflection, its distortion on the water makes for a really nice image!
God bless you!
Cezar

Ebie said...

Nice, like an abstract painting!

AMALTEA said...

It's very attractive the imagen on the water, is a bit oniric.

imac said...

A very romantic reflection James.

Arija said...

Beautiful shot with the slight distortions, so clear but dreamlike ar the same time. Isn't Venice a grand place for photography?

Thérèse said...

Surtout ne pas bouger... Superbe!
Troquer les pixels contre de la gouache ou de la peinture a aquarelles et cela devient une formidable peinture abstraite.

Liz said...

Gorgeous reflections from one of my favourite holiday destinations!!
Perfect
