Piazza San Marco – Venice, Italy

My hotel was just off the square so getting up early and getting to the square in the morning was easy. I should have asked for an early morning coffee along with my wake up call:-)

The square was clear except for the foundation work around the tower and the scaffolding on the church. As luck was not on my side, I went for wider scenes.

You can see the blue in the sky change as the sun rises. These shots, to follow, is the blue light (or blue hour) that I like.

There were some fellow early morning photographers around too. Luckily we did not appear to get in each others way, or scene.

Hi Ramesh – I have only been to Venice once, but I imagine it is difficult to take a bad shot in such evocative surroundings. However, you have really nailed it here – the “from within the loggia” perspective of the Campanile and Basilica reminds me that I must return — soon!!
Thanks, David

Thanks David – I agree, it’s a beautiful place. Timing matters in so far as good weather and no scaffolding or repair work. Both the colosseum in Rome and the basilica in Venice were under repair when I went. Would be nice to find a website which lists such things for all the major iconic buildings around the world.
