Venice, Italy - My Skywatch Post

Thought I would change our direction and travel north and east to Venice this week. These two photographs are probably my favorites of Venice. The weather was perfect this day, absolutely perfect. Be sure to check out Skywatch Friday for more terrific sky photographs from my e-friends all of the world. We had over 350 participants last week. I know you will enjoy.
