Softly Lit Canal by vividpeach

Currently unavailable for purchase

This is a canal at 1am in Venice, Italy. I used a long shutter speed to smooth the water and collect enough light to take the photo.

LOVED the canals at night in Venice!

Hi! Like everyone else, I LOVE and have a passion for photography!

A couple of years ago I went back to school to get a degree in Web Design and New Media.

Also, so you know, I jealously guard my favorites so if you take a peek into mine, you will only see what I think is excellent work—if I’ve favorited your work it’s cuz I TRULY believe it deserves to be there!
