Nodding Gondolas   St Marks Square, Venice, Italy

The quintessential Venice scene from St Marks Square before sunrise.  Only the conditions are slightly unusual the backdrop being shrouded in dense mist.  It didn't meet with my hoped for expectations and I began half-heartedly to compose shots slowly closing in on the scene that I eventually realised worked by virtue of the conditions.  The mist had removed redundant clutter and caused the colours to glow beautifully in the flat light and that little splash of red amidst the blue was truly serendipitous.  A good lesson learned, work with what your given and be grateful.
