153/365 Venician Gondola

Another image from my recent trip to Venice.  This time an image of the gondola’s lined up with the San Giorgio Maggiore in the background.

Venician gondola’s, Venice, Italy, July,2012.

151/365 Venice view II

When we stepped out of the elevator at the top of the Camponile the views were breathtaking. Luckily for me, the morning had started off quite cloudy so the heat haze wasn’t as strong as the previous days so visibility was still good for photography.  Looking at all of the streets and houses and how compact they are, its no wonder we got lost on several occasions! 🙂 It was like a maze in there and from this height reminds of the ‘Where’s Wally’ books! (Still can’t find him in this though! 😉 )
This view is looking north from the tower with mainland Italy just visible on the horizon.

150/365 Venice view

Another one of Venice taken from the Camponile Tower in St Marks Square. From this height if you look south-south west you can see across the Grand Canal over to the Santa Maria della Salute (Cathedral in the top right) and also the island of Giudecca (in the top left) with the Chiesa del Redentore (Redentore Church) visible.

149/365 Rialto Bridge, Venice

I’ve  just returned from a very special 30th birthday present to Venice, Italy.  I would highly recommend anybody thinking about visiting Venice to go as it’s a wonderful city with so many different things to see.  Very unlike me, I only took one body and one lens as it wasn’t a photographic trip but I still managed to spend half an hour capturing the Rialto Bridge during twilight.
This image was captured as two separate landscape images knowing I would stitch them together (very carefully!) using Photoshop.  As it was the 5D3 I used to take the images with the end file size was 104mb!

087/365 Oak tree and acorn

Todays image is a bit different from my usual photography.  This is a concept I’ve had in my head for some while now and have finally just finished it.  This image is manipulated from 6 other images and blended together in photoshop.  I have taken all of the images needed at my studio.  I wanted to show the symbolic meaning of how an acorn can grow into a mighty oak. 

Canon 1D MkIV with Canon 17-40mm f/4 L lens (for tree) and Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro lens (for acorn).
