Venetian skies

My daughter and I have just enjoyed five magical days in Venice.

I haven’t had time to sort through my many photos, but I love the skies I managed to captured on my mobile phone.

The early mornings

Were often dazzling and golden;

Golden

And sometimes the quiet back streets

Offered up gifts of moody clouds

And beautiful views.

Moody morning

For more gorgeous skies, please visit: Skywatch.
