Seagull here, seagull there, seagull everywhere!

Fall has undoubtedly arrived in Venice. Days are getting shorter, shadows are getting longer and everyone is soaking up the (still) warm sunrays till the sun disappears below the horizon, replaced by the cold, wet cloak of the Venetian night. Seagulls are especially enjoying the past couple of sunny days!

View toward San Marco from Punta Della Dogana

Count 1 seagull, 2 beams and 3 churches!

Birds of a feather flock together!

Spectacle of the Elements

Fall season is the season when one can catch the most beautiful sunsets in Venice. The weekend storm drifted away and gave way to the first cold spell of fall. Water, air and fire enveloping me on the vaporetto - what a way to enjoy a waterbus ride from Lido to Zattere!

Not much time to do a full blog entry today because of university work, so I am just posting a photo that I took on my way to lecture the other day. Even street manholes here on Lido remind you how much beauty Italy has treasured...

One Rainy Evening in Venice

Rain storm tonight. But even bad weather doesn't seem as bad in Venice!

Reflections in Piazza San Marco

Admiring the Bridge of Sighs in the rain

The Kiss

Welcome to my blog about Venice!

Well, I never really thought I would do the blogging thing. Especially right before my first exam. But since Venice is beautiful beyond words, I feel like I have to take you on a tour of its secret (and sometimes not so secret) treasures, through my photography. I hope you enjoy the ride!
