In most of my blog entries to this point, I have been displaying many of my New England and United States photos. Those who know me best, however, know that my wife and I love cruising, in the Caribbean and throughout the world. After an absence from my blog, due to traveling, family illness, and just being really busy, I am ready to blog again—-and for a while, I’ll be showing photos from around the world.
In August, my wife and I went on a cruise from Venice to Slovenia and Croatia. In Slovenia, we visited Koper, and in Croatia, we traveled to Rovinj, Split, and Dubrovnik. I took my Nikon D90 with me and my Nikkor 18-200 VR lens, along with a polarizing filter and a mini-tripod.
This photo was taken on the Grand Canal as we slowly cruised down it on a vaparetto. As the sun was setting, it cast a golden glow on the colorful buildings, though it left the gondoliers in the shade.
Settings: Nikon D90, ISO 400, f6.3, 1/160, 78 mm, 1/3 stop underexposed
