In the age of digital cameras, it can sometimes feel almost impossible to get a picture of something really beautiful that hasn't already been photographed into ubiquity. (See my previous post for a perfect example of how difficult it is). Elgol Beach in Scotland? Been there, done that--and so has every other photographer who's ever been to Scotland. The classic view of Manarola, Italy? That's why it's called the classic view. The Eiffel Tower? Don't even bother trying to get something unique there.
This is one of those rare moments where I found something beautiful that relatively few tourists/travellers ever see. This is the stunning corridor along Viale X Giugno in Vicenza. We were trying to get to Monte Berico and the classic view (ugh, those words "classic view" again) of Vicenza. All we had was a map and an idea of where we were and where our destination was. Stumbled across this beauty completely by chance. It ended up being one of my favorite architectural sights in the architecturally overwhelming city of Vicenza.
This is just a small portion of the arched corridor that runs along the Viale.

Superb picture with great graphical elements. Just a hint of green at the end of the arcade let me think of pathway and the door to paradise.
Very well composed picture indeed.
have a good sunday

C'est un superbe couloir et l'effet graphique est bien réussi. Belle profondeur et la lumière est superbe.
