Ponte della Croce on La Giudecca, one of the major Islands of Venice, Italy.

This bridge used to be called Ponte della Zirada (of the turn), because in the regattas the boats rounded a post placed opposite to it.

    Great shot Tom. So much to see from the vantage point of one’s balcony … a whole new perspective, quite different to our usual ground level view.

  • Thanks for the great comment, very much appreciated …

    Tom, this is fabulous, beautiful colouration, what a great place for a holiday.-

  • Thank you Peter. We only had one day in Venice, but now we intend to go back for a long weekend. I’m not sure I could take a whole week there, it is way too busy for my liking …
