Traffic on the Grand Canal by Tom Gomez

Traffic on the Grand Canal by 

Looking down the Grand Canal from the top of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy.

Water traffic is chaotic here with Gondolas, Water Taxis, Vaporettos, Ferries, Speedboats and even Rowboats trying to make headway in the crowded canal. Moored watercraft line the banks beside the waterside restaurants.

The buildings lining the canal are a fascinating mix of styles.

The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Three bracketed RAWs Tonemapped in Photomatix Pro.

Camera: Sony NEX-7
Lens: Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC
