Photographer's Note

The Gondola Race, Venice...

This annual event which is also the Festa di San Marco, presents a view of the gondola which contrasts with the familiar one while at the same time it reflects the fun loving nature of the Viennese. Each coloured gondola represents one of the regions of Venice so the race while essentially a fun event is the subject of great rivalry between the regions.

I took this shot while cruising on board of a small boat! it was too close, and real fun! not to mention some water splashing and rocking from time to time:)

quite a show!
