An Port – Donegal

There is a place up in Donegal that always surprises me for its beauty and wilderness. The coastline is fabulous, you can walk for hours both North and South along gorgeous cliffs and sea stacks. Still I haven’t managed to come home with a shot that makes it justice. Last weekend also the guys fromContinue reading “An Port – Donegal”

Sunset over The Seven Mile Bridge

The Old Seven Mile Bridge offers one of the most memorable walk or short bike ride ever. If you are visiting Florida, you probably wouldn’t miss the famous Overseas Highway, a 127.5 mile (205.2 km) highway carrying U.S. Route 1 (US 1) through the Florida Keys. I took this picture at sunset from the northernContinue reading “Sunset over The Seven Mile Bridge”

Postcard from Venice – waiting for the Biennale

It has been a pretty busy week for me here in Venice, since I am moving from the neighborhood of Dorsoduro to the one of Castello. Many stuff to do left me with almost no time to take pictures, so I went trough my library to find this one of the amazing Biennale installation byContinue reading “Postcard from Venice – waiting for the Biennale”

Postcard from Venice

My postcard from Venice of the week is another twilight view from the top of San Giorgio Maggiore’s bell tower. I blended two images to get this final result. I took the first exposure just a few minutes before sunset, to have the best from the sky. Then I waited 20 minutes for the sun toContinue reading “Postcard from Venice”

Pictures of Venice – Burano

Sailing away from Venice I have been chasing the light of Burano in a cloudy winter day to take this picture. This small group of 4 islands linked by bridges is well known for its brightly coloured houses, for the traditional lace handcraft, and for its culinary specialties as the “bussolà buranello” cookies, really somethingContinue reading “Pictures of Venice – Burano”

Pictures of Venice: Grand Canal

I went to the same place as for the previous post to photograph this picture of Venice but, as promised, I put more colors and movement than I did last week. How to achieve that is quite simple. I went to the Rialto Bridge in the afternoon, half an hour before the sunset, and patientlyContinue reading “Pictures of Venice: Grand Canal”

Bird’s eye view of Venice

“The best view of Venice!” That’s what a friend of mine said speaking about the photographic spot I am going to share with you this week. It is difficult to take pictures of the most famous places in the world and to be original while doing it, but looking for different points of view mayContinue reading “Bird’s eye view of Venice”

Sunset over la “Salute” – Venice

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 “SantaContinue reading “Sunset over la “Salute” – Venice”

Port des pêcheurs – Biarritz

Surfing through the web looking for some pictures of Biarritz, I have encountered a lot of iconic places of this wonderful city on the ocean: the “Grande Plage”, the lighthouse, the “Rocher de la Vierge”, the tiny beach of “Port Vieux”, but once I was there many other enchanting spots made my list grow longer.Continue reading “Port des pêcheurs – Biarritz”

The Ice Cream Vendor – Biarritz 2

I went back to La Grande Plage more than once. I always do so when I find a spot I love to photograph to try and shoot it with different light conditions. Also trying to change the composition often helps in getting more dynamic framing. So here it is a second shot of the sameContinue reading “The Ice Cream Vendor – Biarritz 2”

The Ice Cream Vendor – Biarritz

La Grande Plage can get really busy during the day, but there are some moments in which you can enjoy all of its peace and quiet, and you don’t even need to get up early in the morning: spending some time looking at the waves of the ocean coming to the beach at sunset isContinue reading “The Ice Cream Vendor – Biarritz”

Le Mesole – Cavallino-Treporti

I have already told how I think the neighborhoods of Venice offer great occasions to the photographer´s contentment, and how I love to wander around these places with my camera trying to spot the right place to take some pictures, and I kept doing it throughout the summer. This time my strolling brought me toContinue reading “Le Mesole – Cavallino-Treporti”

Northern Lagoon of Venice – Cavallino Treporti

Not only Venice is worthy a photographer’s attention, also the neighborhood offers amazing occasions to take splendid pictures. I love to explore the many islands, small villages and beaches that are disseminated in the Venetian lagoon to look for the surprising beauty that lies outside the main tourist routes. I was strolling around Cavallino whenContinue reading “Northern Lagoon of Venice – Cavallino Treporti”

There is something about strolling around Venice with the challenge to take some pictures that represent the beauty that you see. But it is even more important not to forget to change your point of view sometime. This week’s photo challenge is just perfect to train and look at things with a different perspective. SoContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Up”

Tempelhofer Park #3 – Berlin

Here it is another Tempelhofer Park shot. I like this one because it’s a very simple composition, written with shadows more than with light, and shows an unusual relation between nature and urbanization, with the built-up area barely visible in the background that seems to be overwhelmed by the big, strong tree to the fore.Continue reading “Tempelhofer Park #3 – Berlin”

Tempelhofer Park #2 – Berlin

I was walking around Tempelhofer park one day, looking for some photographic inspiration, when my eyes got caught up by this familiar silhouette. And familiar it was indeed: the silhouette in this picture belongs to the valiant mate of my photographic trips around Berlin, an ever-lasting, ever-faithful, wonderful bicycle signed Peugeot. I just had toContinue reading “Tempelhofer Park #2 – Berlin”

Tempelhofer Park – Berlin

Tempelhofer Freiheit is one of the most evocative location in Berlin. This exciting park is strictly connected to many important events of the recent history of Europe: chapters of aviation history has been written here since its designation as an airport, and it eventually turned into a symbol for the defence of freedom with its leading roleContinue reading “Tempelhofer Park – Berlin”
