Venice of course

Gondolas and bridges, yes it's Venice of course. I had never been there before and the Doges city proved more of a delight than I had imagined. Our blogging trio went into camera overheating mode. Here's a selection of my best shots.

Des gondoles et des ponts, oui c'est Venise bien sûr. Je n'y étais jamais allée et la cité des Doges a été encore plus magique que je ne l'imaginais. Les appareils photos de notre trio de blogueurs sont passés en mode surchauffe. Voici une sélection de mes meilleures prises.

Du rêve et du romantisme... tout simplement mythique et intemporel ;-)

Hard to choose but I think the top one takes it, N. I like the "solidity" (not right word but..."presence" maybe???) of the water.

Peter said...

Que c’est beau ! Ca donne envie d’y retourner, n’est-ce pas ?

Blissful virtual tour. I am transported to a time of Venitian painters.

Nathalie, these are simply gorgeous. The second one knocks me out, especially when I click to see the bigger version. It looks like you missed the worst of the flood. Was St. Mark's Square under water while you were there? I have very ford memories of Venice.

Well now i don't know. At first I was voting for the hunk in the last photo then I got a grip and decided the top one that 'roon liked. Love the color. But Bob's choice of the second in the monotones is great and I like the boats. Oh well let's just say you did a marvelous job capturing Venice and I hope there will be more tomorrow??

These photos makes me want to start painting again! Venice is definitely a place I would like to visit again one day!!

Deslilas said...

Même sans y avoir mis le moindre pied, que de souvenirs au moins cinématographiques !

claude said...

Tes photos sont très belles Nathalie, Tu n'as rien à envier à Peter. Venise est belle, y a pas !!!

Since Venice is sinking and the oceans are rising I would guess that this would not be the city one would want to retire in. Still, for those who enjoy lots of water everywhere it sure is number one. And the photos are exceptional.

Elle est trop photogénique cette ville ! C'est pas drôle...

Jilly said...

Ah Venice - my favourite place...

Love them all - the first is such a beauty. I love also the one of all the gondalas moored (this is a scene you often see yet I think you've given it something different) the reflections, the angle. And so much water in the next - how high the water is - beautifully photographed.

As for the last one, what can I say - yes please. How delicious is HE!

Venise a été inventée par un(e) peintre ou un(e) photographe...au choix!

Sharon said...

Wonderful photos. What a great mini vacation.

Marie-Noyale said...

Belgrade Daily Photo said...

Such beautiful photos. I'd like to go back there one day.

richard said...

Great selection Nathalie - and the previous ones. Captures the changing moods and views of Venice very nicely!

Cergie said...

Tu as l'habitude de gérer la lumière très contrastée, bravo.
A seconde vue, l'eau qui me surprend, elle ne semble pas très... fluide, on dirait qu'elle est dure comme du verre ou figée comme du gel.

Sur le message précédent, j'aurais pu parler du Taj Mahal et de l'Inde... Je préfère me dire que je devrais retrouver mes godasses de rando en GORE-TEX®

Un beau complément aux photos de Peter et l'eau apporte une telle humeur à tes si belles prises de vue.

Vous n'avez pas sorti l'APN en même temps sur un blog "peteresque" il y avait des stars en parapluie.

Note bien que certaine blogueuse est photogénique quelque soit le temps ; elle bonifie le pixel

Delphinium said...

quel charmeur ce bergson. :-)) Moi j'ai apprécié surtout les pompes que tu avais. est-ce que comme Jésus, tu as pu marché sur l'eau?
Pour ce qui est des photos du jour, j'apprécie particulièrement la dernière. Et le chapeau du monsieur. Il a aussi de belles pompes et je suis sûre que quand il sourit, il doit être beau comme un dieu, déjà que là, sans sourire, waoouuuuhhhh. :-)) Peter n'a pas été trop jaloux que tu prennes en photo ce bellâtre? :-) bises!

freefalling said...

The first shot - too beautiful.

Elle voulait qu'on l'appelle Venise vous me voyez maillot rayé la voix soumise en gondolier said...

Il n'empêche que tes photos sont belles...

Ruth said...

Sooo wonderful! I especially love the evening shot of the gondolas, and the last shot. What total fun!

Shutterupshutterbug said...

Gorgeous!! Can't wait to visit next summer.

Cuckoo said...

Hi,
Here from Peter's blog.

Your photos are so very enticing, each one is of class.

Remind me of my visit to Venice.

I think I have been to your blog earlier as well.

Jason Daily Photo said...

Wonderful photos. I've had a chance to visit Europe, but I've never been to Venice. Maybe some day...

Sally said...

Fantastic! So glad you got there and you've "felt the magic". Is that gondolier out of Central Casting, or what!!!

MmeBenaut said...

I don't need to visit there now, I've seen it all! Fabulous photos again Nathalie but it seems so incongruous to me to see buildings rising out of the water. I can't quite get my head around it. I've always had a fear of drowning, even though I'm a strong swimmer, so perhaps that it is the reason.
Does it smell? Surely all that decay can't smell good.
MB raves about the place but I've never wanted to go necessarily. It sounds like you enjoyed it though.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Wonderful pictures! Loved all them! Well done Nathalie!

jordaenne said...

Nathalie c'est magnifique-les belles reflets de couleurs magiques de la vie dans les rueruisseau de la vie.

merci.

brigetoun said...

ne manque que l'odeur ! sourire - j'aime cette ville, et j'aimerais que les ordes de tourristes en soient dignes

joan said...

Lovely! I need to get there.

Tomate Farcie said...

Awwww! Franchement ça fait plaisir aux yeux ces photos!
