Pictures of Venice, Veneto and Italy
The thing that struck me when I first visited Venice, so very many years ago as a young girl, was just how vibrant everything was.
I walked out of the station and laid eyes on the Grand Canal. The
sparkling light, bright colors of the boats, and the translucent blue
of the water was something I never expected.
In most photos Venice looked grey and dull - in winter it can be -
but on a bright summers day it most certainly isn't and I was
determined to find photos that captured that.
Only a few of my photos were good enough. I have to boast a
little here and say that I am getting much better than I was in the
beginning. My husband though disagrees and reckons it is just the camera
that is better...hmmm!
Veneto is not only Venice though. The photos of Verona, and those of
the other areas of the Veneto, clearly show just how enchanting this magical region is.
In fact we have photos from all over Italy and every tiny corner has something of exceptional beauty to offer. If you aren't in Italy right now I promise these photos will start you dreaming Italian dreams :-)
