October in Venice, Italy

Venice is one of my favorite cities but I’ve never seen it in October. I was hoping the cruise ship crowds would be somewhat reduced but to my amazement San Marco was as filled as ever. Things quiet down after sunset when all the cruise folks board their ships and leave town. Walking through Venice at night with a camera and tripod is as close to heaven as you can get. I had a great time walking around Venice at night with my photographer friend Steve Wood.

    Diana, this is a magical image. That vantage point has such a full palette of action, and architectural detail and, old grandeur. I love the way the Grande Canal leads the eye along the sinuous curve to the chapel at the end. I love the way you captured the moon in the perfect location. And— think the whispy clouds wrap the moon and lend it such softness. And,that is just part of where the magic comes from for me.
