Della Salute from the Campanile

Della Salute from the Campanile

This photograph was taken from the top of St. Mark’s Campanile, a bell tower in St. Mark’s Square – the main square in Venice, Italy. The weather wasn’t great as there was a lot of sea fog around so this was the best I could do. The photographs from Venice were the first time I used a DSLR camera, the Canon 300D was used which was my dad’s camera at the time.

Santa Maria della Salute

Santa Maria Della Salute Venice

This photograph shows the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute (which roughly translates to the Basilica of St Mary of Health/Salvation), commonly known simply as the Salute. It is a famous church in Venice, placed scenically at a narrow finger of land with the grand canal to the right as we look at it here, there is a waterbus just entering the grand canal in this image.
