Green Venice: Canale di San Pietro Before the Storm
(as usual, please click on image to enlarge)
A panorama taken late this afternoon from the Arsenale's Porta Nuova tower, shortly before a storm. The Lido spans the horizon in the background, the trees of Sant' Elena's park lie behind the leaning campanile of San Pietro, and at the right edge of the horizon line, barely visible, is the island of Poveglia, about which I'll have a bit more to write soon.
