R is for Riflessi

"Riflessi" is Italian for reflections, one of the most fun things to photograph in Venice. Some people say that, of all the cities in Europe, Venice has changed the least since medieval times. But what you see reflected in those canals is constantly changing. Sometimes the water seems like a mirror, other times you get something more impressionistic. You can click on the photos to see them larger on Flickr.

what fabulous reflections these are.

Fantastic reflections. I love your shots of Venice. Carver, ABC-Wed. Team

Love these. What a perfect word for the letter R, in Italian or English.
Photos are beautiful, especially the last one. It looks like an oil painting.

shooting for the reflections is brilliant and a great point of view.


Dear Annie,
Yes, great photos, but I would love to look at my reflection upon such still waters. Thanks for sharing.


Venice is twice a beautiful this way. Gorgeous pictures.


Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, beautiful photo collection of Riflessi in Venice. Love learning the Italian word for reflections. they are all very cool and I also agree that the last photo looks very much like an oil painting. Ah Venice, she is lovely.

Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great evening.

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.


Fascinating shots, the last one looks like a painting!

Beautiful reflections!

R is for RED, come and see.

Exquisite trip through lovely Venice. Thanks.


I like the reflected twigs the best.

Great take on the theme and lovely photos.

Is the 5th one down (branches) in Santa Croce, close to La Zucca?

Oh, I do love these reflective reflessi, Annie! What a colourful post, shimmering with energy!

Susie, yes it is - good eye! I love that neighborhood (and La Zucca).

Annie, I love that neighborhood as well. I took a photograph of the same spot. The tree branches just seemed to be yearning to escape the confines of the garden wall. I like your photograph!

Beautiful shots! I love #3!

Thanks Susie! Wouldn't you love to see the garden on the other side of the wall?! It's interesting that the leaves are still green even though I took that photo in November.

Wonderful - I love the way the light plays with Venice's reflections in the water. I wonder how it will be in December when the light is not as strong . . .?

Hi Jerry, the light in winter is wonderful. All of my photos were taken in either November or December.
