Photographer's Note

No enemy ship can ever enter the city waters as long as he's on duty...

This shot was taken from the campanille (belfry) of the Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. I was really amazed by the light: the sun has just broken in after the rain, and the water was simply golden! Here you see the sculpture of St.George on the top of the basilica cupola, behind it - the wide Canale della Giudecca, then - Isola (island) della Giudecca, and on the horizon - the waters of Laguna proper, separating Venice from the continent...

No Wikipedia this time ;)
