Sunset in Venice Last Night

I’m in Venice until Friday to conduct a workshop. This is the view from my hotel on the Grand Canal. It is incredibly beautiful here in Venice. I will be posting more photos from here in the next few days, then I’m going back to Sao Paulo!

    What a beautiful photograph! Did you use a digital camera or a traditional one? I cant wait to see your images from Brasil. BTW, I have enjoyed your photos on; I hope they pay you very well- you deserve it!

    I agree with Gwen -just about to say it and read the above comments and just knew someone else was going to say this beautiful shot is reminiscent of a painting! <3

    Venice is my favourite city in the whole world despite everything and I can't wait to see who you photograph here. I always love the smart elderly women with their shopping trolleys.

    What a stunning, peaceful view of the canal — the ripples in dark bluish hues, the neat rows of gondolas, the disappearing sun.

    Thank you!

    Can it be your favorite city, even if you've never been?

    Try seeing the new site of the Fondazione Vedova, near Punta della DOgana. Renzo Piano designed the mechanism that rotates the pictures on display. It is really worth a visit.

    If you've ever seen "Don't Look Now" (Julie Christie, Donald Sutherland, directed by Nicholas Roeg), you'll never look at Venice the same.
