Festa del Redentore 2015: Five Views

The pontoon bridge over the Giudecca Canal to the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore
For more views of the Festa del Redentore from different perspectives and prior years--including what it's like to be on a boat in the bacino of San Marco with fireworks exploding almost directly above your head--see:

2014: "Seeing, Feeling, Breathing Fireworks":

2013: "7 Views of Redentore (on Sant' Elena)":

2012: 16 images of the fireworks behind the church of Santa Maria della Salute, taken from the Grand Canal (the Giglio stop): 

Swept away by "selfie" mania in the basin of San Marco 4 hours before the fireworks began at 11:30
Space along the waterfront of the Giudecca Canal with a view of the fireworks was in great demand, but a good many people set up on side canals (as above), perhaps trusting in their ability to create some fireworks of their own
What everyone was waiting for
In spite of unrelenting heat and humidity, the party continued on the steps of Il Redentore--and elsewhere--well after the firework show had concluded
