Lately I had been photographing a lot the installation “The Sky Over Nine Columns” by Heinz Mack before it was removed from San Giorgio Maggiore island to reach its next home. But my eye inevitably converged on this terrific sunset over “la Salute”.
Location: Riva degli Schiavoni, Venice.
What to shot: Punta della Dogana and the church “Santa Maria della Salute” are well in range of your standard zooms to teles from this bank next to St. Mark’s Square.
Ideal time to shot: At sunset the sun will set behind the church who is nicely illuminated by lamps. At the beginning of the day it receives the light directly from the rising sun.
Gear: Tele zooms.
How to get there: Public transport water bus station S. Marco S. Zaccaria (line 1, 2, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2).
