St Mark’s Basilica
St Mark’s Basilica in the blue hour, taken during a particularly wet visit to the beautiful Italian city of Venice. Although it was a holiday rather than a work trip, I still brought my camera and one lens along to do some photography. We managed to avoid floods for most of the trip, but on the last day the torrential rain started again. The heavy rain did make this image of St Mark’s square reflected in a large puddle possible, but also meant we got caught out with no waterproof footwear, not much fun getting the return plane with sodden shoes and socks!
About St Mark’s Basilica:
Saint Mark’s Basilica is the most famous of the Venice’s churches and one of the best known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture. situated in the bustling Piazza San Marco. Originally the chapel of the Doge, the basilica has been the city’s cathedral since 1807, when it became the seat of the Patriarch of Venice. The original structure of the church dates from roughly 1060 to 1100, and most subsequent work has been to restore existing design rather than replace elements. Due to the extravagant design, featuring opulent gold mosaics and intricate carving, the basilica has become a symbol of Venetian wealth and power and gained the nickname Chiesa d’Oro (Church of gold).
