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.

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.

075/365 Sunset

Image no 075 is of a view you have from the Malvern Hills when looking west at sunset.  The main hill at the top of the image is Hay Bluff, part of the Black Mountain landscape in Wales.  It is approximately 60miles from the Malvern Hills.  On clear days it is a prominent feature on the horizon.

034/365 Aerial view of Pulau Gaya

Image 034 is an aerial view of Pulau Gaya, the largest island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman marine national park, situated just off the northwest coast of Borneo, opposite Kota Kinabalu. The villages that you can see around the edges are the stilt villages where illegal immigrants from the Phillipines have set up residence. We were warned not to go there by the locals as it is a very dangerous place with a high crime rate.
