Shot this in 2013 during my second trip to Venice. I’ve been there a numbers of times and I’m sure there are plenty of times to come. I’ll never get bored with that place. (Click to see larger)

I took this photo during the day when I was scouting for an interesting location to come back and take some photos at sunset. This small chapel is in Santa Magdalena village in Dolomites.

Dolomites are very famous for those amazing peaks painted with red at the sunset. That’s also the reason why I chose this place to shoot a sunset, hoping for strong direct light hitting the mountains during last few minutes of a spectacular sunset.

This photo was taken during the sunrise at Piazza San Marco. It was our second trip to Venice and soon we’ll write more about it. In the meanwhile, however, enjoy this amazing view 🙂 Sunrise it’s the only time you’ll see the square almost empty!

This picture was taken from the top of St Mark’s Campanile in Venice. The view is amazing but it would be much better if the photo was taken at sunrise or sunset. Unfortunately, the campanile is open only between 10:00 and 16:00 or so, no chance for a good light 😉 I still like the photo and the way the buildings and the canal are intertwined.

This is one of the photos I took during our second trip to Venice. One of the advantages traveling to this city is that you’ll find a photo on every corner! 🙂 (Click to see larger) Photo details: Nikon D7000; 18-200mm f3.5-4.5; 1/80 sec at f/5; ISO 100. More photos at http://andrzejolchawa.com
