Sunset last evening

I like it when the water of the lagoon reflects the sky.

The Salute, silhouetted against the sunset.

Even the jet contrails got into the act.

A naval destroyer is in town for a couple of days. The public is allowed on board; I’m soon going to see how long the queue is!

The falling sun cast a gentle light on the lute player.

What did I do to deserve this?

I mean, look at this sunset! I must have been extraordinarily good for a few moments.

Then, I was gifted with an extra bonus when I noticed this blossom on a tree that I thought was a Plane tree. I’m waiting for my local expert to identify it. Maybe one of you folks knows what it is.

My knowledge base goes like this “It’s a tree, with a pretty blossom.”

Via Garibaldi, Castello

The sun was just setting behind me, casting a warm glow on this group of people enjoying an aperitif at Strani, on Via Garibaldi. I wish you could join them!

Tramonto (sunset) in Atherton

After what seemed like weeks of rain and grey skies, it has started to clear up. This has lead to some very stunning sunsets here in the Tablelands. These photos were all taken within a period of a few minutes one evening.

Tramonto (sunset) in Venice

I happened to be walking in the right direction, at the right time, to see the farewell to the day, last evening.

It gives me a small degree of sadness (but absolutely no guilt) to say it’s highly unlikely I’ll capture a sunrise for you.

Today’s pissotta is complete with its own gentleman!
