Sunset over a Venice canal. A typical scene in this beautiful city.
Venice is a maze of footbridges, narrow passages and waterways. The ornate architecture in the buildings, coupled with the prevalence of water, makes for some great reflection opportunities.
Piazza San Marco during blue hour, just before the sun comes up. The architecture is amazing and the colour of the stonework is set off against the brilliant deep blue sky.

Taken on a foggy afternoon in Venice, a child performs some street acrobatics into the shadow of the setting sun
A typical Venetian urban scene, enhanced by the spectacular fog that descended that afternoon. The sun was so diffused I could shoot directly into it without blowing out any highlights. The conversion to monochrome helps to highlight the eerie atmosphere.
Venice is a city festooned with canals and pedestrian walkways. There are so few cars, which lends a unique atmosphere to the city. This shot is of the buildings next to the Accademia Bridge.

A gondola ride down a quiet Venetian canal
Murano is the glass blowing island of Venice. Relatively quiet, compared to Venice itself. It has a similar feel to it in terms of buildings and still affords some cracking sunsets.
