Venice at Night (Part 1)

“To build a city where it is impossible to build a city is madness in itself, but to build there one of the most elegant and grandest of cities is the madness of genius.” – Alexander Herzen

    Venice is a beautiful city but too many people the day, much too much.
    I greatly appreciate your photographs because it can be seen when the flow of tourists is at the hotel.
    The night is also a special moment where we feel “wrapped” by the landscape we have around us

      Thank you. I agree with you. To photograph Venice at night without tourists, I had to get up very early in the morning. Greetings
