Burano at Dusk
One of the many picturesque canals overlooked by the brightly coloured fishermen’s houses on the Island of Burano. After a great day exploring the labyrinth of tiny streets and canals during the warm sunny day I set up to do some photography as the blue hour arrived.
Burano is a small island located in the Northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, most famous for its array of colourful fishermen’s cottages. Alongside fishing, the island is also famous for its lacework, much like the neighbouring Murano is famous for glasswork. Delicate lace has been made on the island since the 16th Century and on warm summer days ladies can be seen sitting in front of the multicoloured houses weaving fine lace. It’s well worth a trip to the island when visiting Venice itself, being just a 40 minute Vaporetto ride from the city and included in the prepaid ACTV travel passes. In modern times the main income for the islands 3,000 occupants is tourism, attracting hundreds of visitors every day to see the picturesque canals and rainbow houses.
