Good Morning Everyone,
Yesterday, I shared a bird's eye view of Florence, where the river Arno was a central feature, snaking through the historic city.
Today, I have come in closer and am standing on the Ponte Vecchio looking down the Arno towards the Ponte Santa Trinita. The usual view would be the bridge, but there is more to see.
I love how the buildings are dressed in warm colours and rise like guardians, high above the water of the river. On I day, like this, I was in my element to see so many mirror-like reflections.
Florence, the sunshine, reflections ... tough to beat!
Have a lovely day, from a warm, springlike, England, Bev :-)

Hello Beverley ,
Oh yes , these old high facades and their reflections in the Arno are so beautiful .

Strictly architecturally these buildings may be less beautiful than those from the golden Renaissance period, but they have an obvious charm, and to have such a balcony or terrace with a view of the river and the city wouldn't be a bad idea. The most spectacular view here are the reflections, which you captured very nicely. And you were really blessed with a perfect photo weather that day. The light is so nice and these light clouds are so beautiful.

View due west of course, Beverley, and a magnificent one.
Reflection on water are immaculate, the calrity both on the real buildings and its mirror.
Typical colors of brown, beige, orange and yellow Italian style, achieved a beautiful composed photo.

A superb diagonal, which forms this line of facades that overlook the Arno, giving it splendid reflections, which enhances the charm of the image.
A pretty colorful, powering image.
Magnificent management of brightness and sharpness, to enjoy with the details.
Well seen and fulfilled. I like it.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.C'est un plaisir de marcher sur ce pont tout en admirant les rives du fleuve et les bijoux dans les boutiques. J'aime la ligne de fuite ainsi que les beaux reflets.

After a wonderful series of photos from France and the the second image from Italy is beautiful.
Beautiful view of the facade of high-rise buildings along the river.
Wonderful details and colors, as well as reflections on the water.
Great photo job.

Hello Beverley,there is so much to enjoy in and around the river; and here, as you say,the warm colours of the buildings are so attractive and then the bonus of the beautiful reflections.
The touches of green from the vegetation complete the scene.
Thanks for this reminder of a beautiful place. It is very grey here today too!

The backside of the façades with reflections in water almost an aquarelle
You create an excellent depth and perspective.
Presentation and colours are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

These apartment buildings and their reflections are laid out beautifully in your frame. This bridge turned out to be an excellent POV for this photo. I also like your light management that has preserved the textures of the sky.
