Photographer's Note

Burano is a series of several different islands that are all linked with bridges, located in the Venetian lagoon in Italy.
Besides its lace works, the island is mainly famous for its colorful houses.
These houses have quite small facades and, being painted in strong and different colors, the overall effects is a kind of terrestrial rainbow. The precise origin for this painting habit is not completely clear, but the reason could be that so colorful houses can be seen from far by the boatmen even in the most foggy days.
So foreign photographers are told that the best moments to take pictures of Burano are forecast/foggy mornings, when its colors are even more evident. I guess that it is a kind of a cold comfort for turists (like me...) that, after 45 minutes of "vaporetto", find a grey and dull sky...

Technical Notes:
Nothing at all apart from cropping. If there is one reason for Canon over Nikon, that is the wonderful lens EF 70-200 f/4L IS USM. It is so crisp that often no postprocessing at all is needed.
