Dedicated to love. I think Venice is the most romantic cities in the world. And right now if I wanted to be somewhere with my husband would like to be in Venice.
Saint Valentine's Day, commonly known as Valentine's Day, or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them.
St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire; during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote "from your Valentine" as a farewell to her. Today, Saint Valentine's Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church. The Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrates Saint Valentine's Day, albeit on July 6th and July 30th, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).
The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

This is a nice view of this romantic city. The distance on the canal leads the eye under the bridge in a good POV. I like the inclusion of the woman standing at the left. The colors are sharp and appealing.

La ville par excellence pour les amoureux. Il ne manque qu'un couple en gondole pour illustrer la chose. J'aime beaucoup le format de l'image.

An informative note complimenting an exquisite photo. The bridge is one of the low contour bridge is one of the loveliest in Italy. Just four months after you took this photo, I was at the Calatrava Bridge, but could see this one in the background.

hai avuto un bel pensiero per la giornata degli innamorati, e, oltre alle note molto dettagliate sull'origine della ricorrenza, hai scelto una visione di una cittÓ romantica, quale Venezia. meta di innamorati e no, ma sempre ricca di fascino .
Ciao e buona serata

A beautiful dedication to the day of love, and what better place to showcase that the city of love, Venice. Although I have never been, I would love to see it someday, and its a pleasure to see your shot in the meantime. Great colours, and the shot is full of life too! I really like the girl on the left posing for her photograph!
All the best

Hi maria, Indeed Venice is so romantic! I was there twice not long ago but alone :(. Nice view, a bit sad. Interesting note about the origin of Valentine Day.
siudzi (24639) 2013-02-15 23:50
A well-known view here on the TE however very well spotted and presented during this cloudy day. Like the way you built the composition with a good sense of depth and excellent attention on details. Well done!

I agree, along with most everyone I'm sure, that Venice is one of the most romantic cities anywhere. This panoramic format certainly helps to enforce that sentiment, how could anyone not feel the ambiance there? :) Great presentation of the city and it's unique nature. I like that this is not an often seen viewpoint, most people immediately head past the bridge and down the Grande Canal to St. Marks and miss a chance to capture something a bit different. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week ahead.

Last summer I was crossing canale Grande on the ship. Excellent place and you have captured it in beautiful way. Thank you.

όμορφη παρουσίαση από το κομμάτι αυτό της βενετίας με την χαρακτηριστική γέφυρα,και το κανάλι να δημιουργούν βάθος και προοπτική.Τα κτήρια συμπληρώνουν την εξαιρετική παρουσίαση.

nice panoramic post card from Venice. I like the bridge and old architecture. Fine POV and composition. Well presentation.
Have a nice day.
Robert1969 (6330) 2013-03-13 2:09
Good choice the cut the picture because it
emphasize extra the canal and the
surrounding of it and it camouflages the
grey sky and its makes also the picture
nice wide. Composition and light management
are also very good.
jmdias (46222) 2013-03-22 16:00
nice pov showing well the canal, the bridge, boats and fašades. I liked the framing and the sharpness here. nice job.
