The View at Low Tide

photo by Tamás Fehér
During one of his recent visits to Venice, Tamás took this photo from a campanile or a high rooftop.  The view over the tile roofs and across the water is one of my favorites in Venice.  To see a leaning campanile off in the distance just makes this picture more authentic.

I could be wrong here, but looking at the water, I'd guess the photo was taken at or near low tide.

The companies is Burano. The area in from are the barene around Lazzaretto Novo. They are always above water, but of course to a varying degree with the tide. The lagoon around Venice used to be 80% covered with barene, marshes, but motorised traffic has eroded most of it away. The area east of Sant'Erasmo is one of the largest remaining marsh area in the central lagoon.
