Basilica at Night

This is the Basilica.

When it comes to landmarks in Venice, this impressive piece of architecture always makes it to the top three - along with the Campanile and the Rialto Bridge.

As churches go, she's one of the most visited and photographed in Europe.

She was the home of La Serenissima's soul, and depending on how you look at things, she was also the seat of power.

I took this long exposure on the same night as the photo I posted recently, on March 20th.

I'm not entirely unhappy with either of the photos, but to see something from a true pro, check out the image taken by Nereo Zane - it was posted back on February 20th, 2008.
