Random Photo for 5/14/2012

 

This photo was taken on one of the three bridges that crosses the Grand Canal in Venice, the Accademia bridge.  I went out on our last night there to get some souvenirs and do some night shooting, but for some reason I didn’t bring my tripod with me.  I shot this with the camera sitting on the ledge of the bridge.  I knew I wanted a long exposure for the night, but also to blur the ships moving on the water.  The aperture (at 7.1) is just small enough to cause the lights to have the starburst effect.
