Sunset at the Grand Canal, Venice

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 30 October 2007 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

This photo was taken from the Rialto Bridge which spans the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.

I was spellbound at the way the dying rays of sunlight glinted on the warm stone of the ancient buildings that line the waters edge.
