The Lagoon Islands

In contrast to sombre Venice, here are some images from the Lagoon Islands Murano (famed for glass blowing) and Burano (famed for lace making).  Here the canals are wider and the buildings softer and brighter.  We spent a day visiting these beautiful places using Venice's vaporettos.  Aren't they lovely?


  1. The colors are wonderful. So soft yet filled with light. How do they do that?

  2. it's the colours and the reflection in the water and the feeling that floats out of the images. steven

  3. It's everything I imagined it would be.

    Wonderful photos.
    The water photos from your last post are perfect.

    I loved Venice and thought it very elegant. Lovely memories and also some rather hysterical funny ones too !
