It is a crowded city full of daytrippers. But on this sunset view it looks peaceful. And certainly full of history. Really nice tones from warm orange sky to town in sepia enhancing feeling of history.

This is such a classic view over Firenze, and one I never tire from seeing...especially when there's a sunset like this to appreciate! What an array of warm color to amplify the atmosphere that this city already exudes, you certainly captured a sentiment that abounds here. Right place at the right time to capture this moment. Thanks for sharing it here...I'm going to sit back and watch the night take over now. :)
