Skywatch Friday

Venice in winter: an early-morning sky and
the lovely bells of San Giacomo di Rialto—the city's
oldest church, originally consecrated in 421(!).

[You can see more Skywatch here.]


  1. I knew immediately that this was Venice... Your photos perfectly capture both the atmosphere and the details of that lovely city...


  2. Woo! That's old, even if the entire edifice isn't, the consecrated ground is!

  3. Wow! This majestic buildinghas weathered the elements so well! Great photo!

  4. I barely saw the sky, with such beauty distractions in its way. :)

    To respond to your question, no I wasn't expecting winter in Maine to be so beautiful. We had a very mild winter last year and I was still adjusting to life up north so I didn't do a whole lot of exploration. This year, we got a lot of snow as did everyone else in the NE. I am also more settled with my new life here that I began to explore beyond my immediate boundaries. :)

  5. Go ahead and make me want to sell it all and fly off to Venice to see this gorgeous church!! Beautifully photographed my friend.
    Bon weekend!

  6. Finally, something older than I am!

  7. Alexa, that is a beautiful shot of one of my favorite churches in Venezia. I'm trying to figure out exactly where you were standing when you captured it.
