Sergio, they're all excellent, but that first one is positively outstanding. I love the starkness of it. Where is this?

Thanx Barbara.

They have been taken in front of the old Casiṇ of Venezia Lido, the island in front of Venice.

This is also the place where the Biennale di Venezia is held.

I checked out both the links, and my opinion is reaffirmed: Italy is a place filled with history and art.

One question: are the beaches all as narrow as the ones I saw at the site for Lido? I don't know why, but I always think of beaches as being deep, requiring quite a lot of walking through sand to reach the water. I haven't been to that many beaches, so I might well have a silly, idealized notion of how they ought to look. :roll:

Well, it depends on the beach : there are a lot of them.
Actually Italy is surrounded by beaches for most of its boundaries :wink:
You can find both deep ones and very short ones.
As a general rule of thumb if it is in a place without touristic cities behind it it will be deep, if it is in front of a turistic place it will be narrow.

Sergio,

The second shot with the runner appeals more to me because the runner place the objects in better perspective. Without the runner I can't tell how large the objects are.

Beside kidding, there are a great number of beaches with respect to cliffs along the sea boundaries, especially on the east coast.

I love the first one. And if you have the horizon line crooked... well you can't really see the horizon line haha so you can pretend it just never existed!!!! :)
