Crossing the Giudecca Canal


Rowing across the Giudecca Canal, with all of its moto ondoso (engine-caused waves), can be a harrowing experience, especially if you're doing it alone--though the members of the rowing club on the Zattere are admirably adept at it.

I've recently crossed an even larger expanse of water, the Atlantic Ocean (with much less effort, if rather more discomfort within the confines of coach class), and am in the States right now, so I'll be dipping into my stock of unused images (such as the one above) rather than shooting new ones of Venice over the next couple of weeks.

    1. Thank you, Helen (even though now that I finally have time to reply I'm back in Venice!)
