Spring has arrived, it’s time to take out your gear and head for some gorgeous open air sessions!

Location: Island of Giudecca, Venice.

What to shot: Giudecca Island, with its typical shape of a long thorn, is located immediately south of the central islands of Venice. You can reach it in just a couple of minutes by water bus from the water bus station of Zattere. Besides a lot of nice alleys and small squares to photograph, Giudecca offers a vantage point towards Venice, including St. Mark’s Square, Punta della Dogana and Zattere from the north side, but also a very beautiful and uncommon view of the Venetian lagoon from the south.

Ideal time to shot: All day long, but consider that during summer the sun rises behind St. Mark’s Square, while in winter months the south part of the lagoon offers stunning sunsets.

Gear: Wide angles to standard zooms. Teles if you are going to focus on St. Mark’s Square or isolated buildings.

How to get there: Public transport water bus stations Palanca or Zitelle or Redentore (line 2).

Coordinates: 45°25′30″N 12°19′43″E
