Venice in winter


A friend emailed this photo of Venice taken in the calm before the storm that is Carnivale. I've never had the urge to be there for Carnivale, having heard too many stories about the wild and crazy crowds and general chaos. But there are some nice photos on Venice Daily Photo, including a very cute dog in costume and a shot of rap star Coolio (?) inaugurating the festivities by flying down (on a wire) from the San Marco campanile.

Beautiful photo!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo!!


It really is a gorgeous shot - perfectly captures the ethereal side of Venice.

And thanks for the link to the daily photo. I'm envious of Coolio - I think that Flight of the Angel would be an awesome experience!

Such a beautiful moody winter shot.
