Sky Watch Friday-Ponte Vecchio-Florence, Italy




The sky was bright blue and the reflection on the Arno River at the Ponte Vecchio was sheer perfection. Ponte Vecchio translates to Old Bridge. I just loved this capture and had to share it with you. I so hope you enjoy another photograph from my February 2009 adventure.
