Beautiful Venice (Weekend Reflections # 128)

Venice, Italy

I've been away on a trip all week. Unfortunately, it's business not pleasure, but I'm leaving you with a photo from my last pleasure trip. I hope you enjoy it. I should be back tomorrow.

Please only link posts that have picture/s of reflections.

L'eglise sur la droite de la photo est celle d'où sort Indiana Jones dans "la dernière croisade"!!!:o)
J'esspère que le voyage d'affaires s'est bien passé et que tu pourras te reposer un peu après ton retour. Bonne fin de semaine!

Venice is somewhere I've always wanted to go.

James, Venice is probably my second favorite city (after Paris, bien sûr) and this is a beautiful reflection with the stillness of the morning hours. Great shot and a wonderful display of the varied architecture.

bon weekend,
Genie

I know exactly where you took this fabulous shot, James—standing on the Ponte dei Pugni. Love it!

Great shot James. The blue sky reflected in the water is more real than the real thing.

Dianne said...

I love the contrast of the sunny and shady sides of the canal
and the rippled reflections are so so pretty

I do love the canals of Venice and your capture for the day is awesome, James! Hope you've had a good week and have an even better weekend! Thanks as always for the weekend fun!

Beautiful canal scene in stunning light! Interesting how the buildings on the left seem "crinkled" in reflection while, in the same water, the shapes on the right seem defined and still!

Dianne said...

Wonderful Venetian reflections James ....what a superb backdrop..Bravo!

Leanne said...
